Kenya - Southern Rift Valley (Chapter)
This is the Southern Rift Valley chapter from Lonely Planet’s Kenya guidebook.
The Southern Rift Valley is cool and calm, swathed in forest and watered by moody mineral lakes that blanch and blush with the movements of pelicans and flamingos. The altitude peaks and dips all the way from Nairobi to Nakuru, ensuring pleasant weather almost year-round.
