This rift valley section of Kenya is teeming with wildlife. You descend 3,600 feet from the escarpment into the valley. Be sure to drive to the rift valley lakes for premium wildlife viewing.

The Great Rift Valley is a highlight of any trip to Kenya, where breathtaking natural scenery combines with some of Africa’s most memorable wildlife. We have stopped at one of observation points and view was spectacular.

This was a short stop on a drive from Nairobi to Lake Elementeita.
The viewing area is just off the road and there is a gift shop and a food stop for some snacks and hot tea.

Beautiful views of the vallery despite it being a bit hazy. Great break stop on a busy road.

The Great Rift Valley divides Kenya down the length of the country and we were driving in between those rifts at some point of time of our journey. It is home to big cats, elephants, Grevy’s zebras, and endangered Jackson’s hartebeests. Before the mud-road meets the highway at Loruk town, we made a small photo-stop at a viewpoint overlooking Lake Baringo – the freshwater lake known for different species of birds, crocodiles, and hippos. I love The main attractions of the Great Rift Valley the wonderful national parks and safari opportunities enabled by the wealth of wildlife.

My guide and I stopped here after a long, gruesome travel over roads with potholes, and slow moving trucks. Oh! what a travel!. Nevertheless, the stop was great as I was able to view this massive land who I thought I would never see in my life. Great Rift Valley, is indeed great. The vistas was spectacular. Enjoying tea while relaxing and enjoying the view was just what I needed.

Getting to the beginning of the Rift Valley is an adventure in itself. The view is immense, and driving over the mountain the first glimpse of the valley is intense. It is breathtaking to see, and to know that you are about to descend down into it and the reserves that are within it leaves you feeling exhilarated and excited.

The drive west from Nairobi can be harrowing due to the truck traffic and constant overtaking. That aside as one approaches the Rift the majesty of it is quite an eyeful. The best way to see it would be from the air.

At an altitude of 8000 fts the longonut viewpoint did exactly as promised, it provided a good view of the general area around the rift valley. The view is scenic and breathtaking seeing the cast expanse of the rift valley. There are small kiosks at the viewpoint where gift items and artifacts are sold. They might be a bit pricey but if you can, do buy a few items.

Travelling north from Nairobi one can descend about 5000 feet down the winding road witnessing one of the worlds great natural wonders.Once on the Valley floor, vist Mt Logonot where you can hike around the perimeter of the mysterious and dangerous and forbidden canopy of the crater bottom, see hippos in Lake Naivasha, Hell's Gate Park, and that is just the beginning of the 500 km plus options before you reach the Northern part of the valley up at Lake Turkana.
