The Great Rift Valley and its lakes: The Great Rift Valley is a geographical fault, that is almost 5,000 km in length and extends from North Syria to the central parts of Mozambique. The Great Rift Valley starts from 1,300 ft (395 m) below sea level at the Dead Sea to 6,000 ft (1,830 m) above sea level in Southern Kenya.
The Great Rift Valley was created from volcanic movements, where East Africa is still moving further east every day. The Rift valley is full of incredible lakes, some of which are alkaline. These alkaline lakes attract special birds like Flamingos, virtually coloring the lakes’ pink. You will also find Acacia trees and flowers surrounding lake Awassa mirroring the hot and dry tropical climate in the Great Rift Valley
