Family Memories 3 – the Great Rift Valley

The Great Rift Valley is a geologic depression (rift) that extends from Syria in south western Asia to Mozambique in south eastern Africa. It takes the form of a series of valleys and bodies of water that are bounded by parallel fault lines. It extends 3000 miles from N. Syria to into Mozambique and can been seen from outer space as two parallel lines traversing east Africa.    Many hot springs and volcanoes are found within the Rift Valley.

We travelled to Eldoret on the Monday morning following along the Rift Valley.
