Default Exchange rate tracking

Is there a website that can show me how the UK pound has varied against the
Kenyan Shilling over the last few months/years?

This website has a history of all major currencies.

Here is a link to the rate of the Kenyan Shilling and the British pound
for the last 15 years, until yesterday:

Bobby,
The Kenya shilling has been up and down for years!
If you were being paid a salary in Kenya, which was being remitted to
UK, you would have noticed the highs, and the definite lows!
If you are just going for a short holiday, there won`t be too much
variation. It has been 130- 133 shillings to the £ for ages now.

The first time we went it was around 70Ksh to the ukp.
On one of our safaris it had huge, really unbelievable, 'bounces' in the three
weeks we were in Kenya.
Sorry (for the Kenyans) that it's stablised at such a low rate.

I don't mean to sound too mercenary, but does this mean that Kenyan prices
are low?

That depends on what you buy. Things like lodges and park fees are
usually charged in US$
