East Africa houses ‘the Horn of Africa’ which encompasses Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Somalia. It is mainly a mountainous region which arose through faults from the Rift Valley. It sits equidistant from the equator and The Tropic of Cancer. The ‘Horn’ is a very arid region, experiencing minimal amounts of rainfall, especially during the monsoon season. East Africa is a land of vast open spaces, the playground of many unique and fascinating animals.
