5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE travel guide for Kenya July 23 2000
Format:Paperback
I was simply stunned by the number of detailed maps in this book. The amount of information for each region of Kenya is outstanding and well done. If you need to know it - it's in this book. Hotels, restaurants, parks, reserves, tribes, Swahili it's all here. Very nicely organized.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent investment for virtually everyone May 7 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book, and its relative, the guide to East Africa, got me (and my husband) comfortably through 8 weeks of travel in East Africa. It was equally useful for the trip where I was a woman traveling alone, and the trip I took with my never-been-to-the-third-world dyed-in-the-wool- American husband. The only travellers who PERHAPS might not benefit from this book are people on top-shelf tours that ensure that the travellers' feet never really touch the ground. But I truly think that everyone else will find it well worth the few dollars and the few ounces in their luggage, whether that luggage is a matched leather set or a backpack. the history, the explanations of local occurrences, the accurate and pragmatic tips and techniques for getting around/eating/shopping/sleeping/safari-ing/living are difficult to survive without

3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, but not the best out there. July 6 2007
By Jennifer Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was somewhat helpful when I recently spent two months in Kenya, but I found that some of the information was out of date (despite this being an updated edition) and there were many things that should have been mentioned that were not. Although it gives a great overview, for those who are going to be spending a substantial amount of time in Kenya, I would probably opt for the Rough Guide to Kenya, which was more thorough and much more accurate.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for traveling in Kenya Jan. 18 2000
By Malinda Hoerster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is perfect for traveling the roads of Kenya. I used it when I spent 9 months in Kenya. It lists every detail of the area very accurately. I would not travel without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lonely Planet guide to Kenya Aug. 2 2005
By Mark J. Costales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Lonely Planet giudes are in general great. The guide to Kenya is no exception. The guide not only gives you a great deal of information about where to go and what to see but also lets you learn about the country before you get there. They also describe the country in an interesting and easy to read style. A little knowledge goes a long way when traveling and this guide is filled with useful information.
