Kenya’s Rift Valley is part of the Afro-Arabian rift system that stretches 6000km from the dead sea to Mozambique, passing through the Red Sea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi. A western branch forms a string of lakes in the center of the continent (Alberts, Edward, Kivu and Tanganyika) Joining the main system at the tip of Lake Malawi. The east African sections of the rift failed and now only the red Sea rift continues, slowly separating Africa from the middle East.
In Kenya, the rift valley can be traced through Lake Turkana, the Cherangani hills and Lakes Baringo, Bogoria, Nakuru, Elmentaita, Naivasha and Magadi. A chain of volcanoes also lines the valley. While most are now extinct, no few that 30 remain active and, according to local legend. Mt Longonot erupted recently as 1860. This continuing activity supports a considerable number of hot springs and provides ideal conditions for geothermal power plants, which are increasingly important for Kenya’s energy supply.
Besides providing fertile soil, the volcanic deposits have created alkaline waters in most rift valley lakes. Dream of Africa and your dream of the Masai Mara. This huge expanse of gently rolling grassland, specked with flat top acacia trees and trampled by thousands-strong herds of zebra and wildebeest, is the ultimate Africa n cliché. But for one the reality lives up to the image, and for many people this reserve is not just the highlight of their Kenyan adventure but the very reason they came.
With the big Five roaming the savannah of Masai Mara National reserve, backed by the escarpment, watered by the Mara River and littered with astonishing amount of wildlife is the world – renowned Masai Mara. Breathtaking any time of the year, the Masai Mara reaches its pinnacle during the annual wildebeest migration in July and August, when literally millions of these ungainly beasts move north from Serengeti seeking lusher grass before returning South again around October. The Masai Mara’s fame means that it can get very busy, and during the migration there seems to be many vehicles as animals, and many tend to take off making new tracks wherever they feel it. In addition, Masai Mara is very expensive and prices continuing to rise out of proportion to inflation).
