Known members of the Spirochaeta genus are anaerobes or facultative anaerobes isolated from a variety of aquatic habitats such as the sediments and the water column of ponds, lakes, rivers and oceans, or are host associated as commensals or parasites of animals and humans.

Spirochaeta africana is a halophilic, sodium-dependent (requires between 3% and 10% (wt/vol) NaCl) spirochaete. It was isolated from bacterial bloom in the brine under trona (trisodium hydrogendicarbonate dihydrate, a mineral used in sodium carbonate production) from African equatorial alkaline Lake Magadi. It grows optimally at pH 8.8 to 9.75, and 30 to 37 degrees Celsius. Orange-coloured cells are 0.25 - 0.3 by 15 - 30 um, although shorter and longer cells also occur in culture. It has a periplasmic flagella enclosed in the outer membrane. It grows anaerobically but is aerotolerant; it develops under a cotton plug in liquid culture. Growth is fermentative, using mostly mono- and disaccharides as carbon and energy sources. This is the type strain (adapted from PMID 8573509).
