Kenya the Beautiful
Struik, 1995 - Kenya - 168 pages
This guide explores Kenya, a country in the heart of Africa. Astride the Equator, Kenya extends from Lake Victoria in the west to the sea in the east, with snow-capped mountains and rolling plains giving the country a dramatic scenery. The book evokes the land, its people, in particular the colourful Maasai and their tribal traditions, its history, flora and fauna, cities, game parks and tropical offshore islands. Both the major attractions and the little-known parts of the country are included.
