Located in East Africa, Kenya borders the Indian Ocean to the east, Somalia to the northeast, Ethiopia to the north, South Sudan to the northwest, Uganda to the west, and Tanzania to the south. Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is situated slightly south of the centre point of the country at an altitude of 1,700 meters or 5,500 feet above sea level.

Estimated at 44.4 million, the population of Kenya is relatively young, with 43 percent of all Kenyans aged between zero to 14 years. Only 30.4 percent of the population lives in urban areas, though this figure is expected to expand to 44.5 percent by 2015.

 The population of Kenya is highly heterogeneous (ethnically diverse). Kenya’s ethnic diversity has produced a vibrant culture which at times has been a source of conflict. The predominant religions in Kenya include Christianity 82.6%, Islam
11% and other religions.

English and Kiswahili are the official languages of Kenya. Many Kenyans also speak a variety of indigenous languages.

Although Kenya lies across the equator, annual rainfall over most of the country is surprisingly low and rather variable from year to year.The variety of relief and the range of altitude in Kenya produce a considerable number of distinctive local climates and local weather too numerous to be detailed here.

Short rains are generally from October to November.The long rains last from March to early June.

The average day-time temperature year-round
is between 20°C / 68°F and 28 C / 82 F, but it is warmer at the coast where it is hot and humid all year-roun

Holiday makers who come to Kenya under our auspices are pre-advised on any travel risks to appointed destinations. As a matter of precaution, we AVOID all red alert places. As a matter of fact, those areas have nothing to offer. Solo city travel on foot is not recommended and all our excursions to city attractions are guided.

In coastal destinations, we prefer ALL-INCLUSIVE plans to ensure our guests maximum benefit of a resort and any ventures outside are guided including sports, sailing and dhow restaurant dining. 

Where guests have to travel with a security detail, we are accommodating to such plans and can contribute positively with important information.
