Living in Kenya

Kenya is a country on the eastern coast of Africa, lying on the Equator. Moving clockwise from the south, it is bordered by Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia. The country’s capital is Nairobi; located towards the south of the country, is one of the region’s main economic hubs. Kenya is perhaps most well-known for its range of natural attractions. It is home to Africa’s second largest mountain, Mount Kenya, which stands at 5,199 metres; additionally, from Kenya’s highlands to the west it is possible to see Africa’s largest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, in the distance. The country also has large areas designated to wildlife. Perhaps the most famous of these is the Masai Mara National Reserve, in which all of the animals collectively described as Africa’s ‘Big Five’ reside. These are the buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino. This Reserve attracts considerable tourism, particular at the time of the year in which the approximately 2 million wildebeest migrate. Politically, Kenya operates a democracy that appears free from corruption, and is generally pro-Western in terms of foreign relations. As well as the aforementioned tourism, agriculture remains significant to Kenya’s economy, contributing for just under a quarter of GDP. Kenya’s population is very young due to some fast population growth in the past few decades. English and Swahili are official languages of Kenya.
