General Information About Kenya

Kenya is a country in East Africa with coastline on the Indian Ocean. It encompasses savannah, lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands. It's also home to wildlife like lions, elephants and rhinos. From Nairobi, the capital, safaris visit the Maasai Mara Reserve, known for its annual wildebeest migrations, and Amboseli National Park, offering views of Tanzania's 5,895m Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Sports played in Kenya today include athletics (track & field and other running events), cricket, motor sports, Association football, rugby union, volleyball, basketball, swimming and diving, team handball, netball, rounders, baseball, shooting, softball, bicycling, martial arts (boxing, Shotokan karate)

Sporting Nation

As a great sporting nation, Kenya is probably best known for her award-winning athletes who scoop several awards at the Olympics and other international meetings worldwide. However, despite athletics being almost synonymous with Kenyan sports, there is a lot more on offer to the sporting enthusiast. Most world sports – golf, football, rugby and cricket, to name a few - have taken root in Kenya and are fast growing in their popularity and participation. As such, Kenya is now a sports safari destination where one can enjoy:
    • Golfing on some of the world’s most beautiful courses;
    • Diving in the lovely tropical waters at the coast;
    • Rugby action at the Safari Sevens Rugby tournament;
    • High-altitude training camps;
and much, much more!
 
Kenya Culture and History

Culture

Make Kenya the excuse for your next cultural tour destination. Kenya is home to 42 different, unique cultures. Also inhabited by Europeans, Asians, Indians and nationalities from different parts of the world, the different cultures that have come together in Kenya form our identity. You could choose to stay in the villages and experience untainted traditional ways of life or experience urban culture in Kenya’s cities, where the fast life is never fast enough

History

The British Empire established the East Africa Protectorate in 1895, from 1920 known as the Kenya Colony. The independent Republic of Kenya was formed in 1964. It was ruled as a de facto one-party state by the Kenya African National Union (KANU), it was an alliance led by Jomo Kenyatta during 1963 to 1978

Landscape

It's the landscape many people imagine when they think of Africa. Kenya is located in East Africa. Its terrain rises from a low coastal plain on the Indian Ocean to mountains and plateaus at its center. Most Kenyans live in the highlands, where Nairobi, the capital, sits at an altitude of 5,500 feet (1,700 meters).
 

Kenya Nightlife

The late night scene in Kenya’s cities and towns can be described as simply vibrant, fun and plentiful. After the sun has set in the ‘green city of Nairobi’, travelers and visitors can be fully entertained in some of the city’s stylish and exciting bars and nightclubs. Kenyans too love to party! This is therefore a chance to meet and interact with locals as you drink and dance to music of your choice. Nightlife at the Coast is as exciting as the Swahili name given to the main city of Mombasa, ‘Mombasa Raha’ (Swahili term meaning Mombasa Fun). A perfect way to spend evenings after basking in the sun, if you have energy, you could sample some of the coastal towns’ nightlife
