Pictures of Kenya

Here’s a collection of pictures of Kenya. These images help to understand why each year over 1 million tourists travel to Kenya… Kenya has between 32 and 37 million inhabitants. Most of them live more or less Western life styles, but especially the Samburu, Turkana and Masai tribes have largely kept the customs of the forefathers. At the bottom of this page you’ll find links to alle the pages with pictures of Kenya at this website.
