Climate

East Africa has a total of 57.7% arable landmass, with million hectares of crop production capability, one of the largest agricultural land areas in Africa. This provides investors with the opportunity to incorporate a diversity of assets within portfolio. The amount of rainfall increases towards the south. Rainy season lasts for about four months (June to September) in the north, and up to six months (May to October) in the south.

Geography

The region enjoys a logistical advantage given its geographical location on the Red Sea and it is neighbouring four land locked countries.

East Africa has ample water resources, with the River Nile as the primary source combined with other seasonal streams and groundwater. Blue and White Nile rivers meet in Khartoum to form the Nile, which flows northwards through Egypt to the Mediterranean Sea
