Albertine rift valley is one of the greatest rift valleys in Africa and highly recognized for its lovely and scary attractive looks plus it having a number of beautiful sceneries on it.
Albertine rift is the result of two tectonic plates that once collided and are now slowly moving apart. this geologic activity has created some of Africa’s tallest mountains and many of the world’s deepest lakes, the lovely valley that drives from the tip of lake albert in the northern area to the Tanganyika lake tip in the southern areas, is one of the biodiversity area with beyond more than half of Africa’s birds, 50% of Africa’s mammal and about 30% amphibians and plants it has more vertebrates species than anywhere else. well, this thought-provoking range is enormous and super to visit, especially the northern part that is divided by two epic sized mountains: MT Rwenzori and Virunga mountain.
a catchy point is seen in the south of Virunga, there lies our stunning lake Kivu that is seen draining to the south into lake Tanganyika through the Ruzizi river, later, lake Tanganyika drains into the Congo river through Lukuga river.
points to note: the region is one of the most densely populated areas in Africa and therefore suffers from a high degree of direct and indirect threats to the entire ecosystem, such as unsustainable timber extraction, general forest clearance and conversion to agricultural land, grazing, hunting and firewood collection, and that is one of its threats.
