Product Description


The holiday starts the moment you open the guidebook (The Guardian)

From the Publisher

There is a passion for travel and discovery at Footprint that has been reflected in our publishing since the South American Handbook was first published back in 1924. More than 80 years on, our aim is still simple: to give travellers a refreshingly different view that helps them to follow their own route and have a unique, memorable experience. Over 100 current guides reflect the many ways in which people enjoy independent travel; whether exploring ancient sites, seeking an adrenalin-filled adventure or relaxing on the beach, our authors do all they can to bring our customers the very best of each destination we cover.

Who are Footprint’s™ customers?
Footprint books are used by seasoned travellers of all ages and nationalities. What they have in common is a determination to travel independently and to get their own unique experience of the world. Footprint customers love adventure, are resourceful and enjoy getting off the beaten track. They are inquisitive about different cultures and sensitive towards the communities they encounter.

What makes Footprint different?
An ever-increasing number of travellers are discovering Footprint books, taking them on trips, enjoying an approach to travel that is distinctly different from other guides.

These are the features of the books most valued by experienced travellers:
The authors of Footprint guides have a depth of knowledge and passion for the destination, which ensures that the books are always detailed and accurate. They show places to eat, sleep and visit that are away from the tourist haunts and are often known only to the locals.

The books provide a wide range of options for travellers seeking out the very best activities and adventures. This gives travellers the freedom to explore off the beaten track, providing unique, memorable experiences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kenya Holidays 18 July 2010
Excellent quality book, full of useful information. Liberally supplied with colour illustrations. In my case, having been for my holiday to Kenya before purchasing the item, it was an great reminder of where I had been, with added detail. Take my advice, buy this volume before you go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenya holiday 9 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book containing all the information that you would need for your visit to Kenya. Have purchased dk book previously from Amazon and found service and price unbeatable.

The biggest drawback with this book is that you read it before your holiday and see all the fantastick places and get all the information unfortunately you only manage to cover about 4 pages within a fortnight will have to go again to get our monies worth out of the book,

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book 5 Nov 2010
By Jo W
I bought this book on returning from a Kenyan safari. This was recommended to me whilst on safari. This book was invaluable in identifying all of the animals we had seen on safari. The pictures and descriptions were very detailed. I thought this book was a bargain and am really glad that I purchased this. It arrived very quickly and in a good condition.

Have bought several of these guides for places I've been too and find them by far the best and reasonably priced on amazon. Also know tour leaders for escorted holidays who use them. Give lots of useful, practical and background information.

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to visit Kenya 2 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book. I have quite a few in the series as they provide a great deal of info with lots of pics. I hate wading through reams of text that you get in other guides. Plenty of pages about the wildlife as well as the top safari locations.
