About Kenyalogy & contact
Kenyalogy is a non-official travel guide to Kenya. It is not affiliated to anything or anyone. All the info and facts are to my best knowledge and understanding and the opinions reflected here are only mine. Kenyalogy is mostly a one-man band.
This is me, Javier Yanes. I was born in Madrid, Spain. I earned my PhD in Biology and then turned to writing. I completed a master degree in journalism and have worked in several travel magazines in Spain, and as a freelance reporter for some other publications. During five years I worked at the science section of a daily national newspaper in Spain.
I also write fiction. My first two novels, "El señor de las llanuras" (2009) and "Si nunca llego a despertar" (2011) were published in Spain by Plaza & Janés (Random House Mondadori) and translated to several languages (unfortunately no English translations yet).
I have travelled almost since I can remember, and in 1992 I travelled to Kenya for the first time. In 2000 I published the first version of Kenyalogy. Since I (usually) have other sources of income, Kenyalogy has never been really managed as a business, which allows me to keep my independence and be selective with my contents and links.
Feel free to email me for whatever reason you like, but please refrain from doing so if your question is one of the following strange-but-true FAQs:
I love animals. Can you find me a job in Kenya?
Be sure to check my Frequently Asked Questions (the non-weird ones) about travelling to Kenya.
No, I'm sorry.
Do you own or manage a game lodge or a wildlife reserve in Kenya? Can you get me a job there?
I said no. And, strange as it might seem, pitifully I don't own a single square inch of land in Kenya.
Will you arrange my trip / book my flight / book my hotels / take me on safari?
No / no / no / no. Kenyalogy is not a safari operator. I only give suggestions.
I have to write an essay about lions for school. Will you do my homework?
Nope, dude. And lucky you that I don't have your teacher's email.
Hey! I have a travel site for the best deals on renting diving helmets in Timbuktu! Do we exchange links?
Er... no, thanks. I only publish links that might be relevant to my visitors.
For any other purpose, if you wish to advertise on this site and help support it, or simply say hello, here is my email:

I'm sorry that it's not clickable and for the spaces in between. It's because of spam robots, you know.
