Description


This is a c. 1970 Hameed Moghul pictorial map of East Africa, including Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Wonderful color illustrations of iconic African wildlife, including a cheetah, rhinoceros, elephant, zebra, and giraffe. These portraits provide a framework for the map, which highlights national parks (orange) and game reserves (green). The Rift Valley Lakes, such as Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika, and Lake Malawi, are illustrated and labeled. Icons mark lodges, hotels, and campsites (tents), and are explained in a legend in the lower right. Yellow lines trace major road networks.
