Where is Kenya located?:

Where is Kenya located? Kenya is on the east coast of Africa. On the map, find the equator. It runs through the middle of the country. The equator explains the climate.

Kenya shares borders with Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, and Tanzania. The Indian Ocean lies along the east coast. Kenya is 224,961 square miles (582,650 sq. km.). It is about twice the size of Nevada. Tourism is important for the economy

Geography Facts of Kenya :

Geography Facts of Kenya Lake Victoria is the largest lake in Africa. It is the source of the Nile River. The lake is very shallow. In some places, the water is only 40 feet (12 m) deep. The other large lake in northern Kenya is Lake Turkana. The area around the lake is hot and very dry. One amazing feature is the Great Rift Valley. A rift is a separation in the earth's crust. The valley runs north and south through Kenya. Part of the land in East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula are pulling away from each other. The movement causes large cracks in the earth's surface . The land in between drops down to make a valley. Bubbling below the land is red-hot liquid rock called magma. When magma explodes through a hole in the earth, it makes a volcano. Mount Kenya is an old volcano. Over millions of years, wind and rain wear volcanoes down into rich soil.

What is the Climate Like in Kenya?:

What is the Climate Like in Kenya? Mount Kenya sits right at the equator. At the bottom of the mountain, the temperature is higher. But at the top, the temperature is so low that there is snow all year. Climate is affected by distance from the equator and differences in elevation. Kenya is located on the equator. The sun is directly overhead. This means that Kenya has a lot of sunshine and high temperatures. Most of the country is hot and dry. But there are some differences. The coastal areas are hot and humid all year. Humid means the air holds a lot of water. It rains often along the coast. Winds from the ocean sometimes lower the temperature
