    Mention Kenya Internationally, and One or Two things are immediately brought up.

    One, world dominant long distance runners, and Two the great Wild beast Migration. Yes Kenya is proud to be associated with these facts, but Kenya is one of the most varied lands on the planet both in terms of its geography and its ethnic population. The Republic of Kenya sits on the equator where it’s bordered by the Indian Ocean, UgandaTanzaniaEthiopiaSouth Sudan, and Somalia. In 2019, Kenya has an estimated population of 52.57 million, which ranks 27th in the world.

    With this Diversity the Muriuki couple found a need to celebrate the Happy Spirit of the Kenyan People, and Incorporate the African Heritage into the Carnival outfits.

    Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, is the most dynamic city, also known as the “green city in the sun” for many reasons. It is Kenya’s largest city with a population of nearly four million.

    Nairobi is a city full of contrasts. It’s old enough so you can feel its past and multi-ethnic enough so you can experience Kenyan culture, yet it’s modern enough to get Internet access. It’s a city that blends people from all cultures and walks of life.

    Adorned with modern skyscrapers, world class restaurants, fully equipped hospitals, modern shopping malls, schools, abundant private and public transportation, and universities and colleges that provide local and international curriculum – you will find it all in Nairobi.

    The city is also home to numerous local and international businesses and organizations. Nairobi bustles with activity. It’s a city that never sleeps; the rhythm is fast, day and night. There’s always something to do and see in Nairobi and its people are friendly and hospitable. Kenya information guide.
