Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Nigel Pavitt has lived in the region for 45 years and has travelled this wild terrain many times, across salt flats and up ice-capped mountains. He tells the story of the Great Rift Valley's geological evolution, its tribal life, and its exploration and discovery by Europeans, including fascinating characters as Sir Richard Burton, Dr David Livingstone and Henry Stanley.

Author Biography

Nigel Pavitt arrived in Kenya in 1955 as an 18 year old British Army soldier. He fell in love with the country and has remained ever since, serving 20 years in the African Rifles, and then as an official in the Kenya government. Retired from public service, he is commercially involved in an ostrich farm and a rose-growing business but spends all his free time traveling throughout Africa photographing landscapes and people and documenting African history. He lives in Nairobi, Kenya in the Karen district, made famous by Karen Blixen, the writer Isaac Dinesen.
