Extractions: Kenya Kenya is often described as having everything that is beautiful in Africa within her borders. Abundant wildlife and birdlife living free; outstanding scenic beauty of the rolling savannas, the peace of the desert regions of the north, the majestic highlands and glaciated peaks of Mt Kenya; the grandeur of the Great Rift Valley and the allure of white coral beaches. Kenya overwhelms all who visit her. Time spent in this country can be one of the most rewarding travel experiences of one's life. Since gaining independence in 1963, Kenya has experienced considerable growth and prosperity relative to other developing African nations. By focusing on tourism, Kenya has been able to successfully market its national parks and beautiful coast in a way that allows visitors to experience this region of East Africa while contributing to the country's growth. Kenya offers an array of opportunities for travel, wildlife viewing, and cultural experiences. With an immense network of national parks that include a variety of terrain, Kenya arguably stands as one of the top destinations in Africa. Although Kenya lies on the equator, it boasts a variety of landscapes including a tropical coast, grassy plains, desert, and mountains. A fine example of Kenya's wildlife can be found right outside it's largest city in Nairobi National Park. In the South lies the Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya's most reputable reserve and Amboseli National Park, which sits at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Aberdare National Park and Samburu and Shaba National Reserve are situated in the central region, also the home of Mt. Kenya 17,058 ft, Africa's second highest mountain. The Laikipia region is home to many large ranches on a high plateau between desert and mountain in the northwest. Tsavo East and West National Parks are less frequented by visitors and lies between Nairobi and the coast. Other highlights include the Rift Valley Lakes, Meru National Park, and the Indian Ocean Coast.

INFORMATION Sacred Sound Tools photograph by Mitch Nur In the West we know this instrument as a thumb piano or kalimba, but in its native country of Africa it as called mbira, sansa, likembe, malimba, neikembe, or ikembe. It is both a sacred and secular instrument to the Shona, Bantu, Meru, Gogo, and Soga cultures. Used to contact ancestors and tribal guardians, chase away harmful spirits, weather control, cure illness, and impart a strong life force. During the colonial period in Africa the missionaries taught that the mbira was evil and discouraged the use of the instrument, but since independence it has regained its important cultural role to the indigenous peoples of Africa. The Mbira is musically classified in the 'plucked idiophone' group of musical instruments. It has one or more rows of metal keys or tongs mounted on a wood soundboard which is mounted on a dried gourd which acts as a resonator. It is easy to play by gently striking the ends of the keys with the thumbs. To learn more about the Mbira To find an Mbira

Kenya Map Kenya: Travel Basics Destination Facts Activities Reading ... l Nature and Attractions Nature On Africa's east Coast, Kenya straddles the equator and shares a border with Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania. Its coast is lapped by the Indian Ocean and it shares the vast waters of Lake Victoria with its western neighbours. The Rift Valley and central highlands area form the backbone of the country, and this is where Kenya's scenery is at its most spectacular. The humid coastal belt includes the Tana River estuary and a string of good beaches. Western Kenya takes in the fertile fringes of Lake Victoria and some prime game parks. The vast, arid north-eastern region is where Kenya is at its wildest and most untouched by the modern world. Kenya's flora and fauna defies easy description. The vast plains of the south are dotted with flat-topped acacia trees, thorn bushes and the distinctive bottle-shaped baobab tree. On the rarified slopes of Mt Elgon and Mt Kenya, bamboo forests sprout and even higher up is the bizarre groundsel tree, with its huge cabbage-like flowers, and giant lobelias with long spikes. If you're more into fur and feathers, then head for the teeming game parks. Lions, buffalos, elephants, leopards and rhinos all cavort openly in at least two of the major parks. Endangered animals such as the black rhino are slowly making a comeback and sanctuaries for these creatures can be visited in Tsavo and Lake Nakuru national parks.

Ecological knowledge and the regional economy: environmental management in the Asesewa district of Ghana. Development and Change This study examines perceptions of the environment in farming communities in the forest ecotone of Ghana. It places local knowledge within a socio-economic and historical context and argues that knowledge is continually evolving, attempting to solve existing problems and discovering new ones. It maintains that favourable conditions exist in farming communities for environmental actions and development approaches based on sustainable development, since these areas have suffered from the negative effects of degradation. However, major constraints exist within the wider political economy and policy framework, which is still locked into environmentally-hostile export-oriented production, and political models which marginalize rural people.
