The African Rift Valley in Tanzania
A hardpan layer forms in this volcanic soil in large areas and makes it difficult for tress to grow which why the Northern Park Circuit is mainly a savannah topography. Savannah can support a higher density of animals than any other land type. On the savannah there are these weathered rock islands known as Kopjes formed at a time when lava bubbled up through from the earths crust . The soil adjacent to the kopjes is typically wetter than the surrounding savannah. The Rift Valley in East Africa has been a rich source of fossils that allow study of human evolution most notably at Oldepai Gorge in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
