Africa is like a natural wonderland with such diverse countries and different climate zones. Most of the raw products that we use every day come from there (If we don’t mention that the whole humanity thing started there!) such as Chocolate, coffee, and gold.
There’s a country in East Africa, known as “land of the second chance” (Something like American dream) for many other Africans.
Let’s get to know this country in this post!
Recent History of Kenya
Kenya was colonized by the UK in recent history. It became an independent sovereign state on December 12, 1963, and constantly trying to become a democratic nation.
They have good ties with the US and the UK as well as India and other powerful guys!
In February 1952, When Princess Elizabeth was on vacation with her husband, Prince Philip, she received a call from London, telling her that her father just died that made her the powerful Queen she is at 25! (Yes, Kenya is where she chose to chill with her husband!)
People in Kenya
Kenya’s demography is mostly made up of African tribes with the largest one being the “Bantu” tribe.
Other minor communities are residing in Kenya such as Indians (The main reason why India’s government has a crush on Kenya) or Whites who are mostly British.
Even though not everything’s great in Kenya, people would smile at you where ever you turn your head to. They speak English fluently and love to say hi to each other!
What to do in Kenya
Watch Lion King before traveling to Kenya
Watch Lion King again before traveling there since Kenya is (Probably) where it happens. You’ll find all of the animals and birds in those beautiful landscapes! If you watch it beforehand, It would be easier to remember the characters and other details while you are looking at them in person!
Nairobi The capital of Kenya
The capital of Kenya is diverse, modern, and thriving! You’ll have a lot of fun surfing around with The party buses called Matatus!
Nairobi National Park in Kenya
Despite its small size and being close to Nairobi, this national park has every kind of Animal you can think about!
Cathedral Basilica of the Holy Family in Kenya
This Roman Catholic church in Nairobi is 30 meters high and was originally made for the railways’ worker who lived there and just got baptized in 1906! Cathedral Basilica of the Holy Family is Nairobi’s first stone building!

Thank you for your comment! 😊
My pleasure! I love your posts!
I have been wanting to travel to Kenya for a long time now and heard a lot of great things about it! Thanks for sharing!
Glad you enjoyed it!
Great article!! However, I think you could have said that Kenya has more than 42 tribes with the five largest tribes being Kikuyu, Luo, Luhya, Kamba, and Kalenjin. Bantu is not a tribe; it’s an ethnic group. This gives more justice to the explanation of the people in my country.
Thank you for the explanation. That’s how my guide said in Kenya but I’ll correct it.
Thank you very much for the info and sorry about it.
Loved our time in Kenya…didn’t realize Queen Elizabeth was there when her Dad died.
Glad to hear you liked Kenya! 😊
Thank you for your comment!
The article has truly peaked my interest.
Saved as a favorite!, I like your web site!
I lived in South Africa for many years, but never went to Kenya. Looking at your photos, I wish i had, as it looks like a great place. 🙂
It is definitely a great country to visit.
Hopefully, you’ll be able to go there someday soon!
That’s my country and you captured it better than I could..gracias amigo.
My pleasure! Glad you enjoyed it my old friend 😊
Cool and informative post! Tyvm;-)
Glad you liked it!
I love the Lion King (the cartoon; I haven’t seen the recent version). I also love that picture of the giraffe with the city buildings in the background!
Me too! lol
I watched the new version at at 10:30 pm on a Wednesday night and yawned the whole Thursday at work! lol
Kenya looks beautiful without the mention of Elizabeth. The world doesn’t need royal rulers that are parasites of humanity.
Thanks for sharing your opinion dear Judy.
I appreciate it.
Thank you for no being offended. I like Kenya, never have been there but my friend travelled there, suddenly got married and I think she still lives there. It looks like a beautiful place.
It’s absolutely beautiful.
Of course I’m not offended.
Actually, after reading your comment, I talked to my partner about it and we had a great conversation about pros and cons of a Monarchy! But at the end of the day, I can’t help myself, I’m a big fan of the royal family! lol
Proud to be a Kenyan. Very good write-up!
Thank you very much for your comment 😊
I love the Lion King!! 😀 I guess I’ll love this place too then!
Lol, makes sense 😅
hey this is home 🙂
Good for you 😊👍🏼
Good for you! Kenya is an awesome country to call home!
