Kenya is one of a kind. Unique in many ways and home to a wide range of amazing people. If you haven’t visited Kenya yet, it should be your next destination.
Kenya is a country found within Africa. In fact, most people think of Kenya when Africa comes to their minds or conversations. Among the African countries, we do shine.
Some know Kenya for the bad light while others know it for its awesomeness. Those who have visited us or live here now can attest that Kenya is an amazing place to be.
Many are the times we have been brought down to our knees by terrorists, our own people, and even leaders. We have been victims of many wars and unfairness. But we always rise above our pain and problems. We have learned to move on and concentrate on the positive sides.
Kenya is a home for approximately 43.5 million people. It hosts both the locals, foreigners, and refugees. Constitutes forty-seven tribes including the foreign tribes that were accommodated as natives.
Kenya’s Capital city is Nairobi. It’s a vibrant city and the largest one in the country. The official languages are Swahili and English. Making it easier for the visitors to communicate with the locals. Kenyans are very friendly people and easy to mingle with.
We love visitors and always assures them of Hakuna Matata. Almost all our forty-seven counties have conservation areas. In fact, our country is named after a mountain in Nyeri ( Mt. Kenya).
Wildlife still roams freely among local communities in some parts of our country. The locals have a convenient relationship with the wildlife. Although sometimes it may go south leading to serious human-wildlife conflicts.
We have a wide range of wildlife with a famous one known as the big five. They can be easily sighted in the conservation areas or areas neighboring them. Flora is not left behind either. From the indigenous ones to even the exotic ones.
Apart from wildlife, we have multiple places for fun. Including rock climbing, hiking, mountaineering, swimming, game-viewing, camping, among others. One of the things that make us one of a kind.
We have amazing tourism attractions. From the wildebeest migration, humpback whale migration, game viewing for the big five, cultural tourism, and research. It’s rich with resources to learn from and have fun.
We have a national park in the center of our capital city. Which was once known as the city on the sun. But unfortunately, that has changed with time. Due to climate change, overpopulation, pollution, land encroachment.
Kenya is a land of almost everything. From arid and semi-arid areas. Wetlands and rainforest. The coast. Rivers, lakes, and streams. The equator cut across our country.
Most tribes in our country still practice their traditional ways of living. Hence a good place to learn some of our cultural values. Some major cities like Nairobi, Nakuru, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, among others have embraced urbanization. And are mostly cosmopolitan.
I can not be able to tell you all about our amazing country using this one post. But will keep giving you in bits through this blog. Stay in touch and let’s know more about Kenya here.
