About East Africa

East Africa comprises of 20 territories and is seen more of a region, trancending country boiundaries. Some parts of East Africa have been renowned for their concentrations of wild animals, such as the "big five": the elephant, buffalo, lion, black rhinoceros, and leopard, though populations have been declining under increased stress in recent times, particularly those of the rhino and elephant. The stuning East African scenery has been shaped by the East African Rift, which has caused the creation of the two largest moutains in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro and ount Kenya. East Africa has an astounding prehistory as it is known for being the area where anatomically modern humans first appeared.

East Africa Cracking up

You should get your flights to East Africa soon, it seems, as the region may be splitting in two. A large crack, stretching several kilometres, made a sudden appearance recently in southwest Kenya. The tear, which continues to grow, caused part of the Nairobi-Narok highway to collapse and was accompanied by seismic activity in the area. The Earth is a dynamic planet, even though in some respects change might be almost unnoticeable to us. Plate tectonics is a good example of this. But every now and again something dramatic happens and leads to renewed questions about the African continent splitting in two.
