Kenya - Central Highlands & Laikipia (PDF Chapter)

$4.95

This is the Central Highlands & Laikipia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Kenya guidebook.

The Central Highlands are the green-girt, red-dirt spiritual heartland of Kenya’s largest tribe, the Kikuyu. This is the land whose natural, cyclical patterns define the lives of the country’s largest rural population. And then there’s Laikipia, the scene for some of the best wildlife-watching anywhere in Kenya.
