Kenya, the economic hub of the
East Africa Region, rises from a low coastal plain on the Indian Ocean in a
series of mountain ridges and plateaus which stand above 3,000 meters in the center of the country. The country has a population of over 49 million,
representing 43 different cultures with English and Kiswahili as the national
languages.

Kenya is a Lower Middle-Income
country and the fifth-largest economy in sub-Saharan Africa. According to the
World Bank, the Kenyan economy has a GDP of USD 79.2 billion (Current USD,
2017) coming off a growth of 4.9 percent. Key sectors of the economy are
agriculture, manufacturing, real estate and services. Agriculture is the
largest contributor to the economy at 30 percent of GDP. However,
manufacturing’s share of GDP has been rising significantly over the years and
is currently the second largest contributor to GDP at 10 percent.
If there is a word that crosses
a Kenyan’s lips every day, it is Mpesa (M
for mobile, pesa is Swahili for money)
. The Mobile money revolution has
become a mainstay of life in Kenya. Kenyan’s use Mpesa to pay for literally anything from plane tickets to school
fees. Around every corner in the country is an Mpesa shop. If you plan to be in Kenya for a few days, it may prove
necessary to sign up for this service.


 

Being home to 43 tribes, Kenya offers
visitors an opportunity to interact with a kaleidoscope of cultures and
traditions that have been preserved for timeless generations. Visitors have an
opportunity to visit traditional villages, cultural centers and museums to
learn of the rich and diverse heritage of the people of Kenya.
Kenya’s scenic beauty makes it
one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Whether you’re looking for
the ultimate safari experience, a hiking adventure or a chance to relax on
white sand beaches, Kenya has it all. Some of the top things to experience are:
Game
Safaris
 

 

Kenya has over 50 game parks and natural reserves. The two most notable parks
are the Nairobi National park and the Maasai Mara, home to 25 percent of
Kenya’s wildlife. At the Mara, visitors have an opportunity to see the Great
Wildebeest Migration, one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. This immense
movement only happens between the Serengeti National park in Tanzania and
Maasai Mara National reserve in Kenya during July through October. It features
over 2 million animals crossing the Mara river in search of greener pastures.

Kenya’s
white sandy beaches



Kenya’s 536KM-long coastline features some of the most scenic beaches in the
world. The water from the Indian Ocean is delightfully warm and turns dozens of
shades of blue and green. The beaches are easily accessible from most reputable
hotels that are built right next to the beach.

There are also lots of
activities for visitors of all ages. These include sailing, snorkeling,
gliding and jet skiing.
Nyama
choma (grilled meat
)

Kenyans love their meat in all its forms. Any gathering is an excuse for
Nyama Choma. This unofficial national dish is available everywhere, from
roadside kiosks to highend restaurants. Nyama Choma is most commonly eaten with
Ugali (maize meal) and kachumbari (tomato, chilli and onion salad).
