The Rift Valley is one of the most awe-inspiring highlights of Kenya. It is actually the Great Rift Valley fault-line, which stretches 6,000 miles from Lebanon in the north to Madagascar in the south.
Along Kenya’s part of the Rift Valley, the crack has literally cut the country in two and created some of the Kenya’s most spectacular lake systems and wildlife habitats.
There are a number of lakes which can be visited, Naivasha is closest to Nairobi and attracts wildlife from the surrounding hills and is filled with hippos and over 400 species of bird, including thousands of pink flamingos. Further north is Lake Nakuru, a haven for flamingos, whose shores provide sanctuary for rhino, lion and leopard. For keen birders, Lake Baringo, further north, is a good option. Although there are no flamingos, this freshwater lake is home to over 500 species of bird which can be seen on foot, canoe or by boat. Over in the west is Lake Victoria, the source of the Nile and home of the greatly prized game fish, the Nile Perch.
