Journey through Kenya

Colonized by the British for more than 50 years, ending with independence in 1963, Kenya draws visitors from all over the world to see its fascinating mixture of landscape, wildlife and people. The snows of Mount Kenya astride the equator, sixteen national parks and over 300 miles of silver-sanded coast make Kenya one of the great holiday resorts – with surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and big game fishing among the attractions which have lured such authors as Hemingway and Ruark. Blending historical fact with anecdote and imagery, and with an introduction by late film star William Holden, Mohamed Amin and Duncan Willetts’ 150 color illustrations and Brian Tetley’s text paint a vivid and exciting picture of an unforgettable nation.

Safari

For thousand of travelers, “safari” means vacation memories of a lifetime. This stunning, 200-page tour brings the reader through the greatest safari regions of Africa. Animals, landscape, light, movement; these elements define a safari adventure. Yet in each corner of Africa, a different scenario unfolds. What makes an elephant look different at the base of Kilimanjaro from an elephant in the marshes of Okavango? Why does a lion on the plains of Masai Mara look nothing like his counterpart on the plains of Etosha? How is a camp pitched in Zambia different from a lodge built in Kenya? Safari shows us the many faces of African countries renowned for their safais: South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana, Kenya, and Tanzania. From the political stance adopted by the individual governments to the skills of the rangers, and from the standard of the accomodation to the configuration of space, each country in Africa, each landscape, each reserve offers a character, beauty, charm, atmosphere, and harmony all it’s own.
