WILDEBEEST & MUCH MORE
Kenya lies directly on the equator, on the Eastern coast of Africa, lapped by the balmy Indian Ocean. It is roughly the same size as Texas or Spain. The Great Rift Valley runs through Kenya creating volcanic mountains, highland plateaus, lakes and valleys – creating an enormous diversity of habitats and eco-systems, from snow-capped mountains, lush forests, and fertile savannahs to sandy semi-desert.
PEOPLE & LANGUAGES
There are 52 tribes in Kenya, and over 69 tribal languages (though most Kenyans speak Kiswahili as well as their own tribal language). English is the commercial language; therefore it is commonly spoken in the major towns and at all camps, lodges and hotels.
