Abstract

This is a study of the physiography of the Republic of Kenya. It shows that the country has a diversified landscape which so far, has not been given a serious geographical analysis. The existing physiographic maps are reviewed and found to be far too generalized to be of much practical value. A detailed physiographic map is presented based primarily on landform genesis. From the map, one can appreciate the various landscape types in Kenya as well as the forces that have produced them. Fourteen major physiographic regions are suggested, each being further sub-divided into a number of sub-regions. The final map looks complicated, but the author shows that this careful, detailed scrutiny is necessary for the deeper understanding of the physical environment.
