Kenya is one of the world’s most vibrant countries. Whether you are in search of beautiful beaches along the Indian Ocean, in need of adventure exploring The Rift Valley, or seeking to see African wildlife up-close and personal at the Tsavo National Park, Kenya will fulfill your needs. Although the Massai tribe is most often associated with Kenya, there are an abundant number of tribes throughout Kenya, each with their own language and customs. Some of these tribes include the Kikuyu and Turkanas, among many others. Though many languages exist in Kenya, the two official languages are English and Swahili.
