The Great Rift Valley is a massive fault line. It extends about 6,000 km from the Gulf of Aqaba (between the Sinai Peninsula and Saudi Arabia) southward along the Red Sea, through East Africa to the Zambezi River basin. From north to south along the rift, lakes Albert, Edward, Victoria, Kivu, Tanganyika, and Nyasa form the continents Great Lakes region and divide East Africa from Central Africa. Several volcanic peaks mark the northern sector of the Great Rift Valleys course through Africa.
