Tell me more about Kenya

Kenya’s incredible natural environment and cultural heritage is almost unmatched in Africa. If you’re adventurous - and sensible - it promises the globe's most magnificent wildlife parks, unsullied beaches, thriving coral reefs, memorable mountain scapes and ancient Swahili cities.

Kenya's beauty is compromised by a cluster of familiar problems – HIV remains a major problem, along with cholera and malaria epidemics. Kenya has also experienced major floods and droughts.

While Kenya's diverse population has produced a vibrant culture, it is also a source of conflict that has led to ethnic fighting (but not in MANDO areas). Other pressing challenges include high unemployment, crime and poverty; most Kenyans live on $1 a day.

Kenya has a tropical climate. It is hot and humid at the coast, temperate inland, and very dry in the north and northeast parts of the country. There is plenty of sunshine all the year round and summer clothes are worn throughout the year. However, it is usually cool at night and early in the morning. The hottest period is from February to March and coldest is July to August. The average annual temperatures range between 10 degree celsius and 35 degrees celsius. The long rain season occurs from April to June and short rain season from October to December. The rainfall is sometimes heavy and often falls in the afternoons and evenings.
