Abstract
In making a study of wild life conditions in Kenya in 1953-54t, it was necessary to ascertain present land use in the Colony and no land use map was found to be available. Fortunately, the map entitled "KenyaPolitical and General" (Survey of Kenya. 1951), indicated the extent of the European areas, native reserves. forest reserves and National parks and reserves. The Troup Report (1953) subdvided the European districts into areas of cultivation and ranching. The extent to which native reserves and Crown land were devoted to cultivation or grazing seemed cartographicallx unrecorded, according to conversations with officials of the Department of Agriculture and the African Land Development Unit.
