Experience dramatic scenery and unrivalled beauty in the spectacular Great Rift Valley.
The Great Rift Valley is a huge expanse, stretching from the Arabian Peninsula down into Southern Africa and is visible from space, but Africa is the place where you can really get to know this extraordinary destination. Considered to be the ‘cradle of mankind’, this is truly the place to get in touch with the natural world and the origins of humanity. The landscape here is simply wonderful and nowhere more so than around the Rift Valley Lakes, including Lake Nakuru National Park.
The Kenyan Rift Valley Lake System is made up of eight lakes, a mix of freshwater and alkaline. The landscape here is made up of the lakes as well as stunning mountains and undulating plains, home to a variety of wildlife. All of this combines to a spectacular experience of the natural world. Witness a diversity of natural life, from huge flocks of flamingos to graceful giraffes. The wildlife here is spectacular and for birdwatchers, it is without doubt a bucket list destination.
Soak up an atmosphere in the Rift Valley Lakes that is almost spiritual as you witness unrivalled wildlife and tap into echoes of our past in this amazing part of Africa.
