Kenya is an East African country with about 43 tribes. It has an estimated population of about 40 million people. It gained independence from the British in 1963 and became a republic in 1964.
This large number of tribes means that Kenya is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines and languages. Kenyans are very hospitable as is with the local day to day life. A visit to friends homes usually goes hand in hand with tea, coffee or any other beverage on hand.
Apart from the wonderful people, it is mostly well known abroad for its abundance of wildlife. From the big five, to the wildebeest migration from the Mara to the Serengeti to numerous bird species all over the country.
Kenya has a coast and thus enjoys beautiful and expansive white sandy beaches with amazing marine life. Not forgetting the numerous old forts and ruins dating back to the pre-colonial period.
This blog will look to bring you a picture of Kenya, from the wildlife, the restaurants, lodges and hotels, the cuisine from the various tribes, the music and art festivals around the country and the night life in the country. We will seek to target both local and international tourists and be the ultimate guide to viewing and enjoying Kenya.
