Over the Easter weekend, I was reading a copy of Lonely Planet Kenya book. It’s an excellent guide, but with a somewhat skewed view of Kenya. e.g. it begins with an abbreviated history of Kenya, which has several paragraphs on Richard Leakey, as politician, but no mention of Kenneth Matiba, and also shows that Chief Lenana’s transfer of Masai Land was an okay thing to do.
But it is a revealing insight into Kenya, a country with so much diversity for tourists. There are so many place I have never been to – Lake Baringo, Magadi, Tana river, Marsabit, Gede, Baragoi (learnt that one from AfroM recent travels) and others.
I feel ashamed that whenever I want a holiday, it’s always Mombasa that I want visit again and again. I need to explore my horizons and check out other new places which foreign tourists travel thousands of miles to see and write about, besides shags. Starting with the official Kenya Tourism website.
