Since gaining independence from Britain in 1963 this has been one of Africa's most stable and western oriented nations. Largely because of this it has been able to build up a highly developed tourist industry attracting travellers and tourists from all over the world. Recognising tourism's importance to the national economy, Kenya is one of the leading nations fighting animal poaching especially of elephant and rhino.
English and Swahili are the official languages although, like many Africans countries, there are dozens of different tribal groups each with their own language.
Nairobi is the capital and the main commercial and business centre. Although not large by western standards (approx. 1.2m) it is the main gateway for most airlines into East Africa and is a very busy city. The national population is about 26 million, growing at a rate of almost 4% per year. This is leading to growing social pressure, similar to that seen in other developing countries and problems which will need to be addressed in the near future to maintain some form of political stability.
