Kenya is a republic in Eastern Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean, between Somalia and Tanzania. Among the country's amazing geographical features are Mount Kenya, Africa's second tallest mountain, and Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake. Its capital, Nairobi, is the largest city between Cairo, Egypt and Johannesburg, South Africa.
Kenya provides a current, reliable, and fascinating look at this important East African country. It is the perfect source of information for geography classes, country reports, and students interested in Kenya or Africa. Valuable case studies examine more closely important topics such as the great animal migration of the Masai Mara, the Turkwel Gorge Dam, the devastating spread of HIV/AIDS, and the Marich Pass eco-tourism project. Graphs, charts, and statistics show vegetation zones on Mount Kenya, Kenya's major language groups, telecommunications data, and much more.
