Kenya

Situated in East Africa, The Republic of Kenya is a country bordered by Tanzania, Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan, and Uganda. It has a growing population of 44 million and the bulk of those people live in the capital city of Nairobi. Despite having one of the continent’s strongest and most stable economies, like many other African countries, Kenyans suffer from poor quality of life, poverty, and sociopolitical unrest.

Tourism in the country has been popular for a long time, although there are still many areas where local tribes have had little to no contact with foreigners. The weather in Kenya is moderately tropical, but because of its high altitude (particularly in Nairobi), year-round nighttime temperatures can get cold.

Flights to Kenya

Kenya has many local and international airports, but the largest and busiest of these is Jomo Kenyatta, which can be found 10 miles southeast of Nairobi’s core. The airport serves an expanding passenger base of 6 million, and is ranked the ninth busiest in Africa. It is also a regional hub for Kenya Airways, African Express Airways, and Fly540.

No carriers currently offer nonstop flights to Kenya from the United States. International passengers can choose from British Airways, KLM, Emirates, Delta, American Airlines, Air France, Korean Air, United, Jet Airways, Saudia, and Condor.

What to Do in Kenya

To say there are plenty of national parks in Kenya is an understatement. Take your pick from Aberdare, Amboseli, Lake Nakuru, Masai Mara, Mount Kenya, Nairobi, Tsavo (East and West), Meru, and Sibiloi. Take that African safari trip you have always dreamed of, and get ready to see lions, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, elephants, crocodiles, and many other species in their natural habitat! The beaches of Mombasa are remarkable, as are the country’s many golf courses!

Tips for Tourists Visiting Kenya

Miles of rugged road (surface streets are virtually nonexistent in most African countries) are best traversed via Kenya’s long distance bus system, or alternatively, via the low cost, regional airliners Fly540 and Airkenya. Swahili and English are the official languages in the country, with most people speaking the latter fluently in Kenya’s tourist hot spots. The Kenyan shilling is the principal currency, but a number of exchange banks are located close to Jomo Kenyatta.
