Yemen History

Yemen is one of the oldest centers of civilization in the Near East. Its relatively fertile land and adequate rainfall in a moister climate helped sustain a stable population. Between the 12th century B.C and the 6th century C.E it was dominated by six successive civilizations which rivaled each other, or were allied with each other and controlled the lucrative spice trade. Yemen became part of the Muslim realm.

Yemen Landforms

Stretching from northern Syria to Mozambique, the Great Rift Valley is a 6,000-kilometre trench in the Earth and one of the planet’s most outstanding geological features. In Kenya, the valley is at its deepest north of Nairobi, where the Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort affords spectacular views over Lake Naivasha, Mount Longonot and the Aberdare Mountain Range. The Rift Valley offers golfers a real feeling of being in Africa, a spectacularly peaceful setting, and the perfect base for adding a longer wildlife safari to your itinerary.
