Kenya Central

...

... is a relatively high altitude part of the country, an island of well-watered and fertile landscapes surrounded to the north and east by arid steppes.

The heart of the region is the broad saddle between the Mount Kenya and Aberdares mountain ranges. Whilst the peaks remain protected by national parks, the surrounding areas are now heavily populated and dominated by intense small-scale agriculture.

From a safari perspective, the most interesting areas lie around the northern and eastern margins, where the rivers of the central highlands flow out into the surrounding semi-desert. Here the human populations are much less dense and there is much more opportunity for wildlife.
