Stretching for over 6,500km from the Red Sea to as far as Mozambique, the Great Rift Valley’s East African Rift is comprised of two branches: the Eastern Rift and Western Rift.
Supported by a vast lake system and rich volcanic soil; vegetation and wildlife within the rift valley flourish. An exceptional range of habitats, including volcanic outcrops, open waters, swamps and waterfalls as well as geysers, hot springs, forests and open grasslands combine with exceptional concentrations and diversity of wildlife to provide some of the most sought after safari locations in the world including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Ngorongoro Crater and Kenya’s Rift Valley Lakes.
Each area within the rift valley offers a diverse selection of wildlife ranging from Rothschild’s giraffe, hippo, black rhino, lion, cheetah and some of the highest bird diversities and concentrations in the world including flamingo and 13 globally threatened bird species.
