Kenya is famous for its scenic landscapes and vast wildlife reserves teeming with lions, wildebeests, crocodiles, buffaloes, hippos, and flamingoes — like a savanna straight from the Lion King.
Beyond the incredible biodiversity, Kenya is sub-Saharan Africa’s third-largest economy. Nairobi is one of the world’s fastest-growing cities, now a thriving metropolis and a key center for trade in East Africa. Kenya enjoys strong performance in agriculture, transport, energy, tourism, and the services industry, and further growth is expected to power the Kenyan economy in the years ahead.
