A new format and its not good
Lonely Planet has changed their format a bit and added lots of gimmicks such as more photos, along with highlights and when to go, etc.... But sadly they have really skimped on the things we really want to know - hotels, restaurants, sites, safari companies and transportation. I think I will have to opt for the Rough Guide instead.

Not My Style
By Photo Bug Traveler
I found the Frommer's Guide (which is a few years old)much better written for info on lodging/where to stay whihc is what I was most interested in to plan this trip and returned this book..

Mzuri Sana! = Very good!
By Melisa Siegel
As usual Lonely Planet hits the mark with accurate info delivered in humorous ways. I used the Kindle Fire version which was easy to navigate, and even the maps were helpful.
