Geysers of the World   

Geysers of Yellowstone   



  Africa Geyser
Feature Type: Geyser
Geyser/Spring Type: Fountain geyser

Norris Geyser Basin
Porcelain Basin

Dormant since 1981. Was active from 1971 until the late 1970's ranging from a regular geyser to a perpetual spouter and finally a loud roaring steaming fumarole. Maximum height was around 45 feet.

Reports at geysertimes.org indicate that during the summer of 2016, there were fluctuations in the fill level of Africa's pool. It is not known whether any of these led to eruptions. Perusal of the logbook at the Norris Museum might prove interesting.

What to look for:
Please report any activity to the Norris Museum or Old Faithful Visitor Center.
