Visible from space, Africa's Great Rift Valley is a diverse landscape of erupting volcanoes, forest-clad mountains, rich grasslands, vast lakes and mighty rivers, stretching four thousand miles from the Red Sea to the mouth of the Zambezi. Home to the greatest concentration of animals on Earth, including lions, crocodiles, elephants, hippos and flamingos, as well as pastoralists such as the Maasai, this is a land in constant geological turmoil. Delve into this world of exotic extremes, and discover how the forces of nature have shaped this charismatic landscape, creating a hotbed of evolution and the cradle of mankind.
