The Rift Valley
The Rift Valley is a colossal geological feature stretching for 6000 kilometres. It runs from the Middle East all the way down Africa to northern Botswana into Kenya and can be visited just a short drive north of Nairobi. The ground drops away and opens up to a massive valley which is home to lakes, soda lakes, savannah and impressive volcanic formations. This spectacularly scenic landscape is scattered with abundant plains game, a string of reserves and Maasai villages. Visitors can soak up these stunning panoramas against beautiful backdrops. Some highlights include: the dramatic cliffs of Hell’s Gate, Mount Longonot, Lake Elmenteita, and the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park.
