The Great Rift Valley extends for about 4,000 miles, its course being clearly marked by many of the lakes of East Africa as well as by the adjacent volcanic peaks. In Kenya it can be traced southward along the Red Sea and into the Ethiopian Plateau to Lake Turkana, lake Baringo Lake Bogoria. The Tugen Hills to the west of Lake Baringo contain fossils preserved in lava flows from the period 14 to 4 million years ago. The relics of many hominids, ancestors of humans, were found here. The valley contains the Cherangani Hills and a chain of volcanoes, some of which are still active. The climate is mild, with temperatures usually below 28 °C (82 °F).Further down we find lake Nakuru . Lake Naivasha, and to the southern tip of the rift Lake Magadi.
