No matter where I go I always put pride in knowing about the specific country's history, culture, people, traditions, and daily life. For planning purposes I had acquired Lonely Planet Kenya but I was positively surprised to find out that this guide book contains a chapter which gives a comprehensive description of the above subjects as well as economics, politics, etc. It helped to give me a good understanding of the country and the foundation for interesting conversations with the local people. The description of how to get around in Kenya also came in handy. In this chapter you will find information about all means of transportation. If you are in for travelling by camel on a safari, you will be able to get good advice in this book! Since most people going to Kenya go there because of the game safaris, this is a subject which is described thoroughly from a practical point of view. You can read about the game reserves and what you can expect to see there. There is even illustrations of the game but I could have used more illustrations. For this purpose I will recommend that you acquire a field book about the game and birds in East Africa. If you are to stay overnight in the game reserves, you can find information about the facilities and price levels of the various hotels and lodges in the game reserves. Overall, you shouldn't worry about bringing LP Kenya as your travel companion.

This guide book proved to be a good companion for our trip to Kenya, though as it covers the entire country it is not as comprehensive for each place as it could have been. You are likely to need to do a bit of your own research. Otherwise a good purchase.

Well, being a great admirer of LP, I always have a copy for the country to which I'm travelling. Alas! I arrived in Kenya and realised I'd forgotten my LP, so downloaded this Kindle edition in a guest house with a pleasingly fast Internet connection.

Sadly, it's disappointing. The narrative, as usual, is helpful and current, but apart from a few hot links scattered throughout, this is simply a text-based version of the original hard copy. Even down to scanned maps split into 4, with no way to connect them on my iPad. What use is that? Even map legends are scattered - literally, as if someone has used scissors to cut up the pages, blindfolded, and then just shoved them into a scanner.

Not really worth the 8 quid I spent. I'd recommend avoiding this Kindle edition, and purchasing a hard copy somewhere, which will at least include some colour pics. Or just remember to bring your own if you have one already - ha ha!

This is a great book for information on accommodation: backpackers that want to know where the cheap accommodation is and higher end accommodation for those with a bit more cash. It also gives a lot of useful information about the towns and cities. The downside to this book is the field guide which is pretty useless - it shows some pictures of animals but doesn't tell you what they are. If you want a guide on Kenya's animals for your safari steer clear of this book but if you want to know about the different towns/cities and accommodation then this book is excellent for that.

We stayed at Shelley beach near the Likoni Ferry, just across the water from Mombasa. Although the detail for some areas of Kenya was useful it didn't really give us accurate enough information about the nearby resort.

Pleased with this item for my parents safari trip later in this year; just not sure how recent a version it was!
