What is Safari? Meaning of Kenya safari.
A safari is a tour, journey, usually a trip by tourists to Kenya
and Tanzania in Africa. Traditionally, the term was used for a
big game hunt, but today the term often refers to a trip taken
not for the purposes of hunting, but to observe and photograph
animals and other wildlife. There are some other things that a
safari can be used for such as hiking and sight-seeing.

Kenya Way of life
Thatch House, Kenya Inhabitants of a village in southern Kenya put the finishing touches on a new circular thatch dwelling. To build these houses, thatch must be attached in layers to a frame made of wood. The floor inside is made of dried mud.
Most Kenyans place great importance on the family and the traditional values and responsibilities associated with it. Kenyan families tend to be large, and households often include many members of the extended family. Polygyny (the practice of having
multiple wives) exists to some extent among all social classes and ethnic groups. Many of Kenya’s rural inhabitants live on small farms; some live in houses made of mud and wooden poles with thatched roofs, while others live in houses of brick or stone with metal roofs. A small number are nomadic livestock herders, notably some of the Masai people in the south and the Turkana in the north. City dwellers who are wealthy or middle class typically live in modern houses and apartment buildings; however, many other city dwellers live in shanty towns or other inexpensive quarters.
Traditional Dress in Kenya:Members of a Nilotic tribe in Samburu, Kenya, are
wearing traditional clothing. The men wear solid bright red fabrics; the women have vivid designs on their clothing and collars made of roped beads. Jewelry plays an important role in traditional African dress.
Kenya’s most popular sport is soccer, and Kenyan runners have gained worldwide renown for the long distances running and marathon. Many Kenyans occupy leisure time with traditional music and dance. The overwhelming majority of the Kenyan people dress in Western-style clothing; however, some rural Kenyans wear traditional vibrantly colored or patterned garb, such as the single piece of cloth—often bright red in color—worn by the Masai.
Tourism and Other Services
The service sector accounts for 63 percent of Kenya’s GDP. This includes the various services provided by the government and the increasingly important restaurant, hotel, and safari industries, which have grown in response to the increasing number of tourists visiting Kenya.
Tourism in Kenya has expanded dramatically since 1963, and since 1989 it has been the country’s leading source of foreign currency. Tourist arrivals, mainly from Europe and North America, numbered 841 in 2001. Kenya’s main tourist destinations are the beaches along the Indian Ocean coast; national parks and game reserves, such as Tsavo National Park, lake Nakuru national park where flamingos live in thousands, Amboseli National Park; and the famous Masai Mara where over 1.5 million wildebeests migrate very year from the Serengeti plains in search of food making the historic crossing of the Mara river, this historic event attract hundreds of tourist in the Masai Mara. Museums and historical sites are also visited by large number.
