On a guided holiday Safari, there is much to see, not forgetting listening to a clear history about the East African Rift inclusions like the main Ethiopia rift that is detailed parading eastward from the Afar Triple Junction as far as to the kenya riftvalley, Visit the Albertine rift in the riftvalley full of diverse tourist attractions and being a preferable sector for a Uganda tourist who enjoys bird watching.
The East African Rift Zone includes a number of active as well as dormant volcanoes, among them: highest mountain in Africa Mount Kilimanjaro standing about 4,900 metres with three volcanic cones ie. “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, then he second-highest in Africa mount Kenya, Mount Longonot with a large 8 x 12 km caldera, Menengai Crater one of the biggest calderas in the world, Mount Karisimbi an inactive volcano in the Virunga Mountains on the border between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mount Nyiragongo an active stratovolcano with an elevation of 3,470 m, Mount Meru and Mount Elgon, as well as the Crater Highlands in Tanzania. Although most of these mountains lie outside of the rift valley
The Rift Valley in East Africa has been a rich source of hominid fossils that allow the study of human evolution. The rapidly eroding highlands quickly filled the valley with sediments, creating a favorable environment for the preservation of remains. The bones of several hominid ancestors of modern humans have been found here, including those of “Lucy”, a partial Australopithecus skeleton discovered by anthropologist Donald Johanson dating back over 3 million years. Richard and Mary Leakey have done significant work in this region also. More recently, two other hominid ancestors have been discovered here: a 10-million-year-old ape called Chororapithecus abyssinicus, found in the Afar rift in eastern Ethiopia, and Nakalipithecus nakayamai, which is also 10 million years old
