The Great Rift Valley is not one thing, rather it is a confounding geological phenomenon; it has been described as “lots of rifts” but even that does not adequately define the interconnecting complex of faults and grabens that dice up much of East Africa. There are two main systems of deep earth trenches in East Africa: the main, Eastern or Gregory Rift, and the Western or Albertine Rift. The two branches look like upstretched arms separated by the 1,300-kilometre wide East African Plateau on which lies the largest of Africa’s great lakes, Lake Victoria.
