Where Does the Swahili Language Come From ?

May 8, 2008 by · 1 Comment 

swahili_map



The Swahili Language is spoken in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, Somalia, Oman, Comoros Islands & Mozambique. It is the official language in Tanzania, Kenia & Uganda.

The Swahili language is one of the Bantu languages, which form a branch of the Niger-Congo family. The Arabic language has had a major influence in the Swahili vocabulary, due to the fact that the language evolved through centuries of contact between Arabic-speaking traders and many different Bantu-speaking peoples inhabiting Africa’s Indian Ocean coast. Interesting to add that the Swahili language also has been influenced by German, English, Indian and Persian vocabulary.

The Swahilis of Maasai Mara – Kenya

March 8, 2008 by · 25 Comments 

Dive into the beauty of the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti … learn about the Swahilis … one of Africa’s most prominent tribes … The Swahili are a people and culture found on the coast of East Africa, mainly the coastal regions and the islands of Kenya and Tanzania, and north Mozambique. The name Swahili is derived from the Arabic word Sawahil, meaning “coastal dwellers”, and they speak the Swahili language. They also speak the official languages of their respective countries: English in Tanzania and Kenya, Portuguese in Mozambique, Somali in Somalia, and French in Comoros. Note that only a small fraction of those who use Swahili are first language speakers and even fewer are ethnic Swahilis. The Masai are an indigenous African ethnic group of semi-nomadic people located in Kenya and northern Tanzania. Due to their distinctive customs and dress and residence near the many game parks of East Africa, they are among the most well-known African ethnic groups internationally. They speak Maa, which is a part of the Nilo-Saharan language family — similar languages include Dinka, Nuer, Turkana — and Songhai, and are also educated in the official languages of Kenya and Tanzania: Swahili and English. The Maasai population has been variously estimated as 377,089 from the 1989 Census or as 453,000 language speakers in Kenya in 1994[2] and 430,000 in Tanzania in 1993 with a total estimated as “approaching 900,000″ Estimates of the respective Maasai populations in both countries are complicated by the remote locations of many villages, and their semi-nomadic nature. Although the Tanzanian and Kenyan governments have instituted programs to encourage the Maasai to abandon their traditional semi-nomadic lifestyle, the people have clung to their age-old customs.
