    Default Mountains of East Africa - old style map

    With the advise of the Mountain Club of Kenya (www.mck.or.ke) I made a map of all the mountains in the region, Kenya and the North of Tanzania.

    Another source of inspiration are old style maps. I tried to make it look like something not too new.

    The map is not a scale map, however I tried to put things in relative perspective. Nairobi is the central place of the map thought-wise. Mountains and climbing places are the most important feature here.

    I could swear I've seen this somewhere else. If it's a brand new map, then I guess you did your job quite well.

    I had also the impression I knew the map. Looks good in any case.
