Three of Africa’s most popular trekking regions: Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya and the peaks of the Ruwenzori National Park on a durable, waterproof and tear-resistant map from terraQuest. Each destination is presented on two panels: a general map of the area plus an enlargement of the highest part at 1:50,000.
On one side is coverage of Kilimanjaro. The general map at 1:150,000 extends eastwards to include Arusha with the Arusha National Park and Mt Meru. The enlargement covers the peak of Kibo between the Umbwe Cave Camp on the southern approaches and Second Cave Camp along the northern Rongai Route.
On the reverse are four panels. The Mount Kenya area within the ring road linking the main tourist centres around the mountain is shown at 1:175,000, with an enlargement for the approaches to the summit. The Ruwenzori panel at 1:100,000 covers the National Park on the Ugandan side of the border and extends east to Kasese. The enlargement shows the highest part of the mountains with the approaches to Mount Margherita, Mount Alexandra, Mount Speke and Mount Baker.
Both the general maps and the enlargements are contoured and have relief shading plus colouring and/or graphics to indicate different types of terrain and vegetation. Coverage by glaciers shows the present extent and the area covered around 1900. Trekking routes are highlighted and, where appropriate, named. Symbols indicate locations of hotels, mountain huts and bivouac sites, ranger stations, medical services, bus services, etc. The general maps of the Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya areas show a large number of local villages with the connecting network of roads and local tracks. All the panels have latitude and longitude grid at intervals of 1’. Multilingual map legend includes English.
The map is laminated in a format similar to the old cloth-dissected maps so that sections of it can be easily folded back without damage.
