More About Kenya
The first thing you will notice when entering Kenya is that it’s full of wonders, different and unique – just like every other country in Africa. It’s a huge country in terms of size and population. In fact, it is home to more than 40 ethnic groups who live alongside each other peacefully in what’s known as multiculturalism. These tribes all speak their own languages and practice various traditional customs, but they also all live under one flag: that of Kenya. And they all love their country with a fiery passion – as only Kenyans can! Other than its natural wonders and breathtaking landscapes, you can also find some great wildlife here – including lions, leopards and elephants.
History of Kenya
The name Kenya comes from Keni, a Bantu term for community (ken-), and -ya, a suffix denoting settlement. It is also known as Gikuyu, Kikujo, or Kikuyu, which is self-explanatory. This describes an ethnic group called Gikuyu, who have traditionally lived in that area. The British chose to call them by their current name, probably because they felt that it sounded better than Gikuyu.

Exploring Snow Town
Stone Town, a historic centre for trade and culture inside Zanzibar City, is where most visitors to Zanzibar enter and exit the country. The Sultans had their capital in this historic city, and the decaying palaces, bathhouses, and mosques that remain now are a reminder of the luxurious and exciting period when the gold trade was thriving.
Zanzibar has had several rulers throughout its history, and one of Africa’s most intriguing cuisines is a result of its lengthy and terrible past. This is the first fusion meal, a delicious blending of Indian, Arab, Chinese, Portuguese, and African cooking traditions, all fueled by the continual presence of spice (these are after all known as the Spice Islands, where cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, and nutmeg come direct from the source)!
In Zanzibar, it is acceptable to consume alcohol and to dress in beach attire when appropriate. However, there are situations and locales when neither is suitable. For instance, it’s advised to refrain from wearing scant apparel and drinking excessively when in Stone Town. There are bars in Stone Town, and you can also drink in tourist and expat restaurants or in the fanciest hotels in town or on the coast.
