In Kenya’s native Swahili, the word ‘safari’ translates to ‘journey’ and this land, which inspired some of Ernest Hemingway’s greatest classics is Africa’s quintessential safari destination. However, there’s more to see here than just the beautiful scenery – the country is rich in Maasai and Samburu cultures, as well as modern cities and bustling marketplaces.

The famous Masai Mara National Reserve is the jewel in Kenya’s crown, the fresh waters of Lake Naivasha are an unusual gem, while Mount Kenya towers over the country’s landscape. As diverse as its landscape are the people, especially in the country’s capital of Nairobi which is a melting pot of cultures from all over the world including Europe, Asia and other parts of Africa.

  • The largest city, Nairobi, is also the Republic’s capital.
  • It is located in the African Great Lakes Region.
  • Its number one export, coffee, is not something commonly consumed by locals – they prefer tea.
  • After coffee, tourism is Kenya’s biggest income generator.
