Experience its biodiverse game and marine parks, biosphere reserves, archeological sites, awe inspiring scenic beauty, pearly white sandy beaches, coral reef sheltered waters, green palms swaying with the breeze, world class hotels, sparkling cocktails and sumptuous international cuisine. Kenya has over the years been accorded the seal of approval by royalty, presidents, celebrities and millions of other holiday makers. Kenya is indeed, the ultimate dream safari destination. But, don't even think about coming to Kenya if you don't know about jambo. It is the one-size-fits-all salute which goes for good morning, good night, hello, see you later, etc... Added to ahsante (thank you), it confers to you enough polite pedigree to travel the Swahili kingdom.


Kenya is a cultural microcosm of Africa. Over the past centuries, people from many parts of the continent and beyond have been migrating to Kenya, each bringing with them some distinctive feature of their own culture and language. What has resulted is a vibrant and colourful cultural mosaic, a melting pot of 28 million people. From the Indian Ocean to the shores of Lake Victoria, and from the southern plains through the Rift Valley to the vast desert expanse in the north, Kenyans have had to adapt their cultures and customs to the physical environment around them. Interestingly, some of the smallest groups of Cushitic speaking Kenyans occupy the largest land area in the north of the country. These people, who make up roughly three percent of the country, lead a nomadic existence in a harsh and arid climate, roaming the northern regionsof the country. Further to the south, Kenyans speaking Bantu and Nilotic languages live in fixed settlements on more fertile and productive lands. It is these three language groupings which bind together the cultural tapestry of over 40 distinct ethnic groups.
