Kenya often evokes mental images of Maasai warriors, exotic wildlife in national parks, and acacia trees on the savannah. These images still ring true today, but there is so much more to Kenya than going on a safari. The country is incredibly diverse in its landscape–from the bustling metropolis of Nairobi to the coast of the Indian Ocean where Swahili culture has remained unchanged and untouched for centuries.
Tanzania, meanwhile, is known as the home country to the great Mount Kilimanjaro, unreal and idyllic beaches, and a centre for wildlife-gazing. But again, there’s so much more just a few steps off the beaten path. The country is a cultural mosaic home to over 100 ethnic groups all blending together to create a unique and vibrant vibe.
It only takes a moment to realize that these countries can’t be summed up in a few lines. The lessons we have learned here would take a lifetime to write. Hopefully though, you will find these truths for yourself.
