Overview

If you travel anywhere in the world, let it first be to Kenya. With its snow-capped peaks and endless golden savannas, its fiery deserts, towering cascades, gleaming Lake Victoria, its soaring escarpments and deep Rift Valley, its rainforests, white beaches and azure coral coast, Kenya is an adventure in paradise.

The Traveler's Kenya Companion leads you through bustling, modern Nairobi to hidden bush camps, from Maasai manyattas to tea and coffee plantations. You'll travel from crocodile-infested rivers to wind-swept mountain trails and balmy coastal resorts. You'll spot the world's last vast concentrations of plains wildlife -- zebra and wildebeest herds, gazelles, impalas, elands, elephants, giraffes, lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas.

And the Traveler's Kenya Companion introduces you to Kenya's welcoming, proud peoples: Samburu warriors and Kikuyu farmers, Turkana fishermen and Asian merchants, European outfitters and Arab coastal sailors -- the melting pot of this vibrant, emerging, unforgettable nation.
