Insight Guide Kenya is illustrated throughout with hundreds of specially commissioned colour photographs. Our inspirational Best of Kenya section illustrates the country´s highlights, from wildlife safaris to dive sites and Swahili landmarks to tropical beaches - making sure you don´t miss anything. With a longer and more in-depth history and culture section than its competitors, this guide provides an essential introduction to Kenya´s archaeological importance, colonial history and transition to a modern republic and tourist magnet. The informative text, written by regional experts, is a pleasure to read and accompanied by stunning photography. With a fact-filled wildlife section, it covers mammals, reptiles and birds and a handy gazetteer provides an on-the-spot reference source to help identify animals on safari. Lavish Photo Features offer a unique insight into the country´s bird and plant life, and the Maasai tribes people and Swahili culture. All major sights are cross-referenced with the maps, and the travel tips section provides a wealth of practical information on how to plan your trip or choose a safari. Insight Guide Kenya now includes the Walking Eye app, free to download to smart phones and tablets on purchase of the book. The Kenya app includes our independent selection of the best hotels and restaurants, plus activity, event and shopping listings.
