Kenya, Great Rift Valley Trek

The Great Rift Valley runs the whole length of Kenya and forms the backbone of the country. It is a major geological feature of the country and incorporates spectacular gorges, volcanoes and soda-lakes fed by hot springs. It forms part of a system that stretches 6000 km from the Dead Sea to Mozambique.

This fantastic trek includes some of the most prominent features of the Rift Valley in Kenya such as ascents of the dormant Volcanoes of Susua and Longonot, a journey through the famous Hell’s Gate Gorge and a traverse of the Valley floor which is home to myriad wildlife including Giraffe, Zebra, Impala, Gazelle and the occasional Cheetah. It concludes with a day’s game viewing in the Nakuru National Park famous for its tens of thousands of Flamingos.
