Kenya Photos

In September-October 2007, I visited Kenya including the Turkana District (Lokichoggio, Kakuma refugee camp, and outlying areas); Mt. Kenya; Nairobi; the Maasai Mara; and the Loita Hills.

The photos below are organized by topic. Due to the large number of photos, you may want to start with the highlights section for a general overview. The highlights are also available as a slideshow.
