      Positive?… that’s debatable… several unpleasant experiences with Matatus come to mind.

    Very interesting and very positive indeed! Great article and a great informative website. There is something uniquely special about the Country.

    Great piece. I’m glad you added things like Kiondo and the rest. However, I feel you can also include the following;
    11. Sandy White Beaches (Diani Beach voted one of the best in the world)
    12. Maasai Mara (Migration is one of the seven new wonders)
    13. Matatu Culture (A lot of history and culture in it)
    14. Nyama Choma (Signature BBQ as we all know)

      Thanks Shawn.

      Indeed Kenyans’ love affair with Nyama Choma could qualify. The Wildebeest migration is also unique, though it happens across two countries.

      Whether the Matatu culture is uniquely Kenyan is debatable. You find the same mode of transport with carefree reckless crew in South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda… who knows where else. The same goes for white sandy beaches.
