Situated on the equator on Africa's east coast, Kenya has been described as "the cradle of humanity". In the Great Rift Valley palaeontologists have discovered some of the earliest evidence of man's ancestors. Today, Kenya's ethnic diversity has produced a vibrant culture but is also a source of conflict.
With its scenic beauty and abundant wildlife, Kenya is one of Africa's most popular safari destinations. The country’s lucrative tourism industry continues to perform well and is the country's largest earner of hard currency ahead of horticulture and tea.
