This handy guide escorts users around all the major – and some minor – parks of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, as well as the Virunga Mountains in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Descriptions of each park and its wildlife offerings, both fauna and flora, preface discussion of the geological origins, influences and current conditions. Key geosites in the parks, and how to access them, are indicated. Maps, satellite images and diagrams, along with vivid photography, help explain the dramatic landforms, both close up and from above.
For anyone planning a safari to the legendary East African game parks and reserves, this book adds an exciting new dimension.
“…an ideal itinerary planning resource for anyone with an interest in the relationship between geology, land forms, paleoanthropology, and wildlife, or simply wanting to safari through the legendary East African game parks and reserves.” ~Midwest Book Review
