Running from the mountains, though forests, down the plains and pouring into the Indian Ocean or the lakes, the East African Rivers have formed spectacular sightseeing, boat rides, rafting and even skiing. As a result of the hilly landscape in the region, water falls, dams and a beautiful network of tributaries has made rivers a major contribution to the tourism safari map.
East Africa’s central waterbody, Lake Victoria, is the source of the two main tributaries of the World’s longest river, the Nile putting East Africa in the maps. You cannot afford to miss a sight of the Mara River in Kenya which is associated with the world famous wildbeest migration from the Maasai Mara National Park to the Serengeti National park in Tanzania. Other rivers include The Tana and Kerio in Kenya, Rufiji, Kagera and Ruvuma in Tanzania, Albert Nile, Victoria Nile and Kazinga in Uganda
