The African Artistic culture

African art and culture are one and the same. Culture is the history,practices and beliefs that make up a society. In Africa, art was seldom used for decorative purposes, but rather to give life to the values, emotions and daily customs of the various ethnic groups throughout the continent.

African art and culture, in many instances deals with making sense out of the world. It also deals with the religious aspects of life. The first African art were terracotta figures that didn’t bother with normal human representation. That’s because African art doesn’t focus on recreating the world in another form, but rather concentrates on explaining the world to reduce the fear of the unknown.

The foods
of Kenya

The traditional food of Kenya, is as mixed and diverse as it’s tribe’s, history and landscapes. Each tribal area has it’s own specialities, but below are some of the most common dishes that you can sample whilst on your travels in Kenya.

Kenyan breakfasts tend to be a fairly sparse meal compared to Western ones. Generally, most Kenyans start their day with Chai (Swahili word for tea), this is usually very milky and sweet. Accompanying the chai is just a hunk of bread (mkate in Swahili) and maybe a piece of fruit. In more affluent households, in the city and coastal areas, you’ll find mandazi. Which is a kind of deep fried dough similar to an unsweetened doughnut, that tastes and smells divine.

The main staples of Kenyan cuisine are: Maize meal (called Ugali when cooked and unga when raw) and rice. Ugali is usually served as a white stiff porridge, good for dipping in stews or making into a makeshift spoon when you eat with your hands. Rice can be served in so many different ways, but usually it is plain boiled rice. On special occasions, like weddings and feasts, the rice is transformed into a wonderful fragrant mound of colourful hues infused by the spices added like saffron, turmeric and cayenne plus nuts and dried fruits, it is a celebration of food, known as pilau rice (influenced by Indian cuisine probably dating back to when the Portuguese invaded with the aid of the Goans).

The Kenya
Wildlife

Kenya is a country of diverse, rich habitat. The humid broadleaf forests along the coast of the Indian Ocean give way to lush grasslands and savannas. The Kenya Lake System of the geologically dramatic Great Rift Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And, Mount Kenya — the nation’s namesake — is the second-tallest mountain on the continent.

The wildlife of Kenya refers to its fauna. The diversity of Kenya’s wildlife has garnered international fame, especially for its populations of large mammals. Mammal species include lion (Panthera leo), cheetah (Acinonyx jubatushippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), African buffalo (Syncerus caffer), wildebeest (Connochaetes), African elephant (Loxodonta), zebra ( Hippotigris), giraffe (Giraffa), and rhinoceros. Kenya has a very diverse population of birds, including flamingo and ostrich (Struthio camelus[1]

A burgeoning service industry continues to grow in Kenya, and ecotourism plays a big part in East Africa’s strongest economy. Visitors flock to the country to see Africa’s “Big Five.” But, lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and buffalo are just a handful of the treasured species in this nation. Baboons, zebras, giraffes, flamingoes, and more are enjoyed by tourists, thanks to a strong national park system and a network of community conservancies.

Beyond the service sector, agriculture, forestry, and fishing account for over a quarter of Kenya’s gross domestic product.

The Kenyan
Landscape

Traveling across this beautiful country offers many breathtaking landscapes of mountains, plateaus, gorges, and plains and you can be guaranteed a sighting of wildlife in their natural habitat and in close quarters.

The Rift Valley

Originally called the Great Rift Valley by British Explorer John Walter Gregory, the rift valley is truly a great natural resource. The view of this natural massive trench is amazing. The sky seems closer if you are at a viewpoint atop either side of the ridge. The floor of the valley is a precarious descent way below. It is mind-boggling to think that this trench runs all the way across Africa, reaching Mozambique and the Middle Eastern countries of Jordan and Lebanon. The sheer size of it from any viewpoint is simply breathtaking.

Mt. Kenya

With Mt. Kenya, you can definitely say you are reaching for the heavens, and from here you will enjoy the scenic beauty that a mountaintop has to offer. The mountain’s highest peak stands at 5,199 meters. Even if you do not reach the peak, a climber of moderate fitness and an experienced guide will be able to scale the mountain to lesser peaks that still allow you an incredible panoramic view down below and up above. When you say you have been to the mountaintop, only kindred spirits will truly understand the breathtaking views that a mountain of this stature has to offer.
