Photographer's Note

An untypical rocky coast north of Malindi.

The landscape is predominately plain. The district rises gently from the beach up to an elevation of 300 m. It is generally hot and humid throughout the year. The long rains come from April to July and the short rains from October to November. The mean daily temperature is around 22 Cs minimum and 30 C maximum. The vegetation zones ranges in the district from mangroves and swamps to tropical monsoon forest, lowland dry forest (Arabuko-Sokoke Forest) to savannah and bush land in the hinterland. Most of the area up to 10 miles from the coastline is cultivated.
