What you need to know:

  • For each country travelled through, Maureen provides general information about climatic conditions, exchange rates, electrical plug types, border crossings, diplomatic missions, websites for further information, and books for background reading.
  • The highlights of their time in Uganda were rafting down the Victoria Nile, the Murchison Falls National Park, Sipi Falls, and the Kibale Forest National Park. They spent a lot of time and drove many routes in Kenya, where their highlights included Kakamega Forest, the Maasai Mara, Lake Magadi, Samburu National Reserve, Lake Turkana – and the beaches.

‘Most travel books,” Maureen Day claims, “fail to mention the small, important details that can take the stress out of planning and eliminate the fear of the unknown.” She is herself the author of a most unusual travel book: 4x4 Travel Guide Eastern Africa.
