Build Your Trip to Africa
There are many different tribes making up Kenya's people – OverlandingAfrica.com gives you a chance to meet many different tribal groups and explore their cultures.
The largest group in the country is the Kikuyu group, who make up about 22% of the population. Kikuyu is the anglicized version of the proper name and pronunciation of GÄ©kÅ©yÅ© although they refer to themselves as the AgÄ©kÅ©yÅ© people. This group is found in the central highlands.
The Luhya are the second largest group, making up 14% of the population. They live in the highlands of Western Kenya, between Lake Victoria to the south, the Nandi Escarpment to the East, Uganda to the West and Mt. Elgon to the north.
The Luo are the third largest ethnic group and are traditional fishermen, and live in the western parts of Kenya. The Luo and the Kikuyu inherited the bulk of political power in the first years of Kenya's independence in 1963.
Other tribes include a small percentage of Maasai, as well as small groups of Swahili, Samburu and other tribes.
