Discussion

Much of the East African Rift shows up in this series of maps. The Afar Triangle is visible in the far north. The match of opposing coasts of the Red Sea breaks down here, because the Afar Triangle is actually mostly exposed Red Sea ocean floor. Note the area below sea level (Danakil Depression). The real edge of Africa is the high scarp west and south of the Afar Triangle, which accommodates the corner of Yemen nicely.
