East Africa Protectorate was an area in the African Great Lakes occupying roughly the same terrain as present-day Kenya—approximately 639,209 km2 —from the Indian Ocean inland to the border with Uganda in the west. Controlled by Britain in the late 19th century, it grew out of British commercial interests in the area in the 1880s and remained a protectorate until 1920 when it became the Colony of Kenya, save for an independent country 16-kilometre-wide coastal strip that became the Kenya Protectorate.
