Kenya

'''Kenya''' ( , and had a population of approximately 44 million people in July 2012.

Kenya has a warm, humid climate along its Indian Ocean coastline, with wildlife-rich savannah grasslands inland towards the capital. Nairobi has a cool climate which becomes colder closer to Mount Kenya, which has only one permanently snow-capped peak left. Further inland, there is a warm and humid climate around Lake Victoria, and temperate forested and hilly areas in the western region. The northeastern regions along the border with Somalia and Ethiopia are arid and semi-arid areas with near-desert landscapes. Lake Victoria, the world's second largest fresh-water lake (List of lakes by area) and the largest tropical lake, is situated to the southwest and is shared with Uganda and Tanzania. Kenya, along with Uganda and Tanzania is famous for its safaris and diverse wildlife reserves and national parks such as the East (Tsavo East National Park) and West Tsavo National Park (Tsavo West National Park), the Maasai Mara, Lake Nakuru National Park, and Aberdares National Park. There are several world heritage sites, such as Lamu; there are also many world renowned beaches, such as Kilifi, where international yachting competitions are held each year.

The African Great Lakes region, which Kenya is a part of, has been inhabited by humans since the Lower Paleolithic period. By the first millennium AD, the Bantu expansion had reached the area from West (West Africa)-Central Africa. The borders of the modern state consequently comprise the crossroads of the Niger-Congo (Niger-Congo languages), Nilo-Saharan (Nilo-Saharan languages) and Afro-Asiatic (Afro-Asiatic languages) areas of the continent, representing most major ethnolinguistic groups found in Africa. Bantu (Bantu peoples) and Nilotic (Nilotic peoples) populations together constitute around 97% of the nation's residents. European and Arab presence in coastal Mombasa dates to the Early Modern period; European exploration of the interior (European exploration of Africa) began in the 19th century. The British Empire established the East Africa Protectorate in 1895, which starting in 1920 gave way to the Kenya Colony. The Republic of Kenya obtained independence in December 1963. Following a referendum in August 2010 and adoption of a new constitution (Constitution of Kenya), Kenya is now divided into 47 semi-autonomous counties (Counties of Kenya), governed by elected governors.

The capital, Nairobi, is a regional commercial hub. The economy of Kenya is the largest by GDP in Southeast and Central Africa. Ethiopia GDP purchasing power 2010: 86 billion. Imf.org. 14 September 2006. Kenya GDP purchasing power 2010: 66 B llion. Imf.org. 14 September 2006. Agriculture is a major employer; the country traditionally exports tea and coffee and has more recently begun to export fresh flowers to Europe. The service industry is also a major economic driver. Kenya is a member of the East African Community. Compared to other African countries, Kenya enjoys relatively high political and social stability.
