Kenya occupies an area of 580,367 square kilometers (224,081 sq mi), which makes it almost identical in size to Botswana. Its most recognized lake is Lake Victoria, which forms a border with both Uganda and Tanzania. Several geographic features distinguish key regions in Kenya.

First, the Great Rift Valley cuts through Kenya in a north-south direction, forming the Cherangani Hills and a chain of active volcanoes. Secondly, the Serengeti Plains in the southwest consists of treeless grassland, which also occupies the north of Tanzania. Finally, the Chalbi Desert is a small desert located in the north near Ethiopia.
