Support us & buy our book!

One thing is for sure, Nancy loved Kenya. In 1986, Nancy Ellen co-authored a booklet, entitled ‘Kenya Trivia’, about Kenya’s ecology, geography and culture. Forty-two thousand copies were published and sold. This publication was a key text used by individuals training to be guides in the national museum, as well as safari guides.

To get your copy message us at or pick up a copy at Spinners Web for 500ksh. All proceeds from the sale of the Kenya Trivia books directly support our programs.
