Richard Trillo has been visiting Africa since 1978. So, having a guide book that goes into some detail about them and offers fairly up to date frank opinions about places to go and stay was refreshing.

Richard Trillo has been visiting Africa since 1978. He is the coauthor of The Rough Guide to Kenya, The Rough Guide to Madagascar, and The Rough Guide to First-Time Africa (with Emma Gregg). Trillo was the director of communications for Rough Guides in London from 1990 to 2006. I checked on some other less traveled areas and found that this book also had some nice detail.

I was looking for information on the Tsavo National Parks in Kenya, and having a very difficult time finding specific information about the area, where to stay, how difficult to drive (esp. across the Tanzanian border). No other guides gave as much information about Tsavo as the Rough Guide did. These two parks have had "up and down" popularity, but are located in an area that has intrigued me for some time. So, having a guide book that goes into some detail about them and offers fairly up to date frank opinions about places to go and stay was refreshing. I checked on some other less traveled areas and found that this book also had some nice detail. None of the books mention the horrors of Mombasa Highway (too many huge trucks, Lorries and buses expressing diesel smoke) but that is I suppose to be expected. The long and short is, don't waste your time on the other guide books if you are looking for Tsavo East and West unless you find a book that is devoted to these interesting parks. (I have been unable to find one) Read the reviews before you buy and then enjoy. I have always loved guide books and have traveled extensively around the world. With a husband who is always working, I, as the widow, must make my way on my own to find the most interesting places, and then places that we can return to together for his short breaks. Guide books are my salvation or my curse. I live nearly half my time in Tanzania, and am no longer easily fooled.

This 10th edition of The Rough Guide to Kenya is a guide I would love to love, but cannot quite do so. During the quarter-century since it first appeared it has been improved in many ways. For content I consider it the best guide to Kenya without reservation. The addition of colors to its abundant maps gives the 10th edition a more attractive appearance. The infusion of colored backgrounds in its numerous boxes of ultrafine print, however, borders on disastrous. Its 1st edition featured bold black print throughout and was easy to read. The print in subsequent editions has become smaller, finer, and inconsistent between its main text and its boxes. The designers who apparently consider its fine colored print superimposed on the colored backgrounds of its boxes stylistically pleasing should be fired. The result is that its 10th edition is infinitely more difficult to read than was its 1st. The running man logo that we always had to assume denoted the authors' preferences of places in previous editions has been replaced by a star symbol that they now explain on the inside cover and again on page 11 are indeed their favorites. This guide has great potential but must eliminate its stylistic finessing and return to legible print throughout.

This was our first trip to Kenya, which we did using a tour company, so we get a lot of information from our guide. I used the Rough Guide to add to what our guide is telling us. I thought The Rough Guide was very good, just the right amount of information and details. The pictures of the animals is almost worth the price of the Guide. I recommend this book.

After looking at a lot of different options, we purchased this guidebook before moving to Kenya. It does a great job of giving lots of pertinent information on the reasons to visit different places and how to do so - more useful information than the other big name travel books. If anything, however, it's a little too rough for us mid-thirties family people. For example, we are much more likely to drive ourselves, rather than make the whole family suffer through matatu travel, but the Rough Guide doesn't give info relevant to drivers. It's even more incongruous when taken together with the $500 per person per night tented safaris described -- with directions on how to hitchhike there instead of landmarks for driving. Other than that, the information is great and we have found everything to be updated and accurate.

Even with having access to the internet, this book provided interesting insights on the culture and history as well as suggestions for places to go that were not necessarily a touristy highlight. The book is organized by regions- has great explanations for what to anticipate- the prices were a bit off, which can be expected- but the cultural insights and attractions were very accurate. It allowed a dialogue with local tour agencies and the hotel we stayed in to negotiate our excursions & transportation- the hotel & travel agencies had a tendency to push certain things and not recommend others that the book suggested. We hired a driver to take us from Nairobi to other places in Kenya that were, at the most, 3 hrs away. Having a written reference allowed for a ready resource throughout the trip.

We used this mainly for our pre-trip decision making process.
It was mostly up to date, though we found that the descriptions of the condition of the rift valley lakes was NOT timely or correct.
There has been a lot of flooding there and the Flamingo numbers are way down.

I will give this a good rating as it appeared to have the most information of the books I skimmed at the book store.

Covers all of Kenya especially the reserves and the conservancies. Found to be an excellent tour companion during our trip to Masai Mara. Having a Kindle version was so helpful we could use it during the game drives on our iPads.
This is a very comprehensive guidebook and it's been a good resource, but...every introduction to each section seems to include some unrealistic and paternalistic desire for Kenya to return to its Out of Africa roots. Too much industrialization, this is too touristy, is it eco-friendly? It's a bit much, but if you are looking for something informative that covers more than the Masai Mara and other luxury destinations, this is it.
