The country of Kenya is located in Africa at latitude of 0.4252 degree South and longitude of 36.7517 degree East. It has Ethiopia, Uganda and Sudan as its neighbors. National Parks and reserves comprise one tenth of Kenya’s land surface and lakes, desert, mountains, grasslands and other coasts dot the rest of the region.
