The country’s interior is dominated by the central highlands with the country’s highest point Mount Kenya at 5,199 m. The highlands are bisected by the Great Rift Valley, a large natural depression that runs through Kenya with a north to south orientation, within the Valley is a chain of volcanoes, some of them are still active.

North of the Kenyan Rift Valley lies Lake Turkana, formerly known as Lake Rudolf. It is the world’s largest permanent desert lake. The Lake Turkana area is regarded by many anthropologists as the cradle of humankind due to the abundance of hominid fossils.
