Inspired by the song; My land is Kenya ~ Rogers Whittaker
Somewhere in Africa. To be precise, in east Africa lies a multi-ethnic state which is inhabited by 42 tribes, this country is known as Kenya. Her cultural diversity has certainly shaped the range of practices, beliefs and languages that are spoken. Kenya is unlike any other country in Africa. It’s cultural diversity is woven into the food, the music, the architectures- even the local superstitions. It’s a sensory experience on all levels and there’s a story lurking around every corner.
Kenya has spectacular tourist attraction ranging from the second highest Mountain in Africa (Mount Kenya) to wildlife which is unrivaled by any other in the world, both in terms of numbers and variety of species. Masai Mara national reserve is a top tourist attraction in Kenya. It has exceptional population of game and the annual migration of wild-beast take place every year from July to October. Animals such as Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino, Giraffe, Zebra, Crocodiles, Hippopotamus, Gazelle, Cheetah, Hyena and a wide range of bird species can all be found in Kenya.
Kenya has also given birth to some of the most influential leaders the world has ever known. One of her daughter’s, the late Professor Wangari Maathai become the first woman in Africa to win Nobel Peace Prize in 2004. In world stage of sporting activities, Kenya is known for athletics. Since 1980s, the long distance races, 75% have been won by Kenyans. Talking about the greatness of Kenyan athletes, you need to visit the, “Home of Champions” Eldoret. Since the trail blazing of Paul Telgat, Kenya has produced more world class athletes, more world record holders and more Olympic medalist in the long distance running more than any other country.
My dream is for people around the world to look up and see Kenya like a little jewel sitting at the top of Africa continent. “Karibu Kenya” meaning welcome to Kenya.
