"Africa's Great Lakes are a shimmering outline of the Great Rift Valley. Victoria, Tanganyika, and Malawi are among the world's ten largest lakes. The Great Lakes proper usually include Victoria and the lakes that curve to its west, but remarkable lakes also trace other arms of the complex Great Rift Valley, from Ethiopia down through Kenya and Tanzania. The western arm of Africa's Great Rift Valley, the Albertine Rift, embraces such rich and varied habitats that its wildlife diversity is unparalleled on the continent. With deep freshwater lakes filling the valley's spine, the Albertine spans mountains, marshes, savannas, and active volcanoes. The geologic forces that created this rift valley are still in motion, mostly visible at its center, around Lake Kivu"--Publisher.
