The Rough Guide to Kenya goes into its 4th decade

The latest fully revised and updated new edition of the Rough Guide to Kenya was published in May 2016. This is the 11th edition since I first wrote the guide, which originally came out in 1987. This new edition is in full colour, with 632 pages, dozens of maps of regions, cities and towns, and very detailed coverage not only of Kenya's key safari areas but also the remote parts of the country that other guides don't cover.

Drop me a line if you want to know about the coverage of the areas you're interested in. If you already have the guide (it's available from all the usual bookshops, including the online ones), let me know what you think of its style and coverage and where you feel it can be improved. What have you discovered in the last few months that's not in the book and should be?

Do let me know!

  1. Congratulations on a 4th edition! I can't get wait to get my hands on it.

  2. Sorry, I meant congratulations on keeping it up into a 4th decade and an 11th edition! :-)

  3. :-) No worries at all. Many thanks for the kind words. Can't believe how old this book is!
