  • Description

    Drought is threatening Kenya's vital tourist trade, which depends largely on the country's game parks and reserves.

    The most popular park is the 44 square mile (116 square kilometres) Nairobi National Park only five miles (9 kilometres) from the centre of the country's capital. A quarter of a million visitors drive through it every year but at the moment the park is littered with the bodies of hundreds of dead animals -- and no rain is expected for another ninety days.
