East Africa has a lot to offer to both locals and tourists. From stunning geography, historical sites, culture, cuisines and entertainment, we’re as diverse as we are hospitable.
JImagine touring Kenya’s rural folk in Samburu County to learn about their culture around a bonfire? Or listening to tales of the Swahili people of Dar Es Salaam in the shores of Indian Ocean? How about enjoying a dish of ‘‘matoke’’ (green bananas) with Batwaa community in Kanungu District of western Uganda? Breathtaking?
