Views of Africa Zoomify @ National Geographic Magazine


Views of Africa Zoomify @ National Geographic Magazine

This map provides a fabulous view of all of Africa's "human footprint". It allows you get nowhere close to Sagam, but if you know where Sagam is, you can, of course, place it on the map. Seeing the "human imprint" on Kenya and neighboring countries is fascinating.

Sagam area is on the Equator, next to Kisumu city, the purple blot on the tip of Kavirondo Gulf on the Kenyan side of Lake Victoria. It is shaded deep red in the map, which means that there is significant human imprint. This is partly explained by the rather dense population of the area.
