Currently the Ewaso Nyiro river ends in the Lorian Swamp in North-East Kenya. It has been suggested that the river once flowed into the Indian Ocean, causing what is now the Lamu Archipelago. However - the course that seems more etched into the earth displayed on Google Maps is one of a more east direction, entering the Indian Ocean north of Kismaayo in Somalia.
