The country takes its name from Mount Kenya, located in the central highlands. Kenya is located in East Africa and borders Somalia to the northeast, Ethiopia to the north, Sudan to the northwest, Uganda to the west, Tanzania to the south, and the Indian Ocean to the east.
The country straddles the equator, covering a total ofsquare milessquare kilometers; roughly twice the size of the state of Nevada. Kenya has wide white-sand beaches on the coast.
Inland plains cover three-quarters of the country; they are mostly bush, covered in underbrush. In the west are the highlands where the altitude rises from three thousand to ten thousand feet.
Nairobi, Kenya's largest city and capital, is located in the central highlands. The highest point, at 17, feet 5, metersis Mount Kenya. Another significant feature of Kenyan geography is the Great Rift Valley, the wide, steep canyon that cuts through the highlands.
Kenya is also home to some of the world's most spectacular wildlife, including elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, antelope, wildebeests, and many rare and beautiful species of birds. Unfortunately, the animal population is threatened by both hunting and an expanding human population; wildlife numbers fell drastically through the twentieth century.
The government has introduced strict legislation regulating hunting, and has established a system of national parks to protect the wildlife. According to an estimate in JulyKenya's population is 30, The population has been significantly reduced by the AIDS epidemic, as have the age and sex distributions of the population.
Despite this scourge, however, the birth rate is still significantly higher than the death rate and the population continues to grow. There are more than forty ethnic groups in the country. The largest of these is the Kikuyu, representing 22 percent of the population.
Fourteen percent is Luhya, 13 percent is Luo, 12 percent is Kalenjin, 11 percent Kamba, 6 percent Kisii, and 6 percent Meru. Others, including the Somalis and the Turkana in the north and the Kalenjin in the Great Rift Valley, comprise approximately 15 percent of the population.
These ethnic categories are further broken down into subgroups. One percent of the population is non-African, mostly of Indian and European descent. The official languages are English and Kiswahili or Swahili. Swahili, which comes from the Arabic word meaning "coast," is a mix of Arabic and the African language Bantu.
It first developed in the tenth century with the arrival of Arab traders; it was a lingua franca that allowed different tribes to communicate with each other and with the Arabs. The major language groups native to the region include Bantu in the west and along the coast, Nilotic near Lake Victoria, and Cushitic in the north.
English is the language generally used in government and business. It is also used in most of the schools, although there has been movement towards using Kiswahili as the teaching language. English is not spoken solely by the elite, but only people with a certain level of education speak it.
