The Great Rift Valley

Lakes and fertile valleys


In Kenya, the Rift Valley cuts through the centre of the country and has created some mind-blowing landscapes. There are alkaline lakes created when the salt dried up and some beautiful islands scattered among them. Throw in natural hot springs, lava-like terrain and fertile farmland and you can see why we have called this area Kenya's kaleidoscope of contrasts.

You can visit the Rift Valley as a day trip from Nairobi or a weekend getaway or spend a week traversing the length of the country. Or it can be combined with other destinations in central Kenya. Whatever you are thinking of, give one of our consultants a free call and we can start designing an itinerary to suit your every need.

Caused by the movement of the earth's tectonic plates millions of years ago, this gigantic fracture in the Earth's crust runs some 6440km from the Dead Sea in Jordan all the way to Mozambique. It passes through all of East Africa and is responsible for the formation of the Great Lakes and the mountain ranges in the region. The heart of it runs through Kenya and no trip is complete without having been here and seen it for yourself!
