Whether you are in a market, a national park, in the city center, or in a slum community, it's impossible to go through a day and not hear the word karibu spoken to you in Kenya. Karibu in Swahili means welcome. it was not a word created to be featured in another marketing strategy to lure tourists into their country. Rather it comes from the spirit of the people in this growing Christian nation of 44 million. Kenyans are warm and loving people that welcome you as a friend. Rich or poor, young or old, Kenyans will embrace you the moment you step foot into their country.
