Swimming in Kenya is a hobby to some people and a sport to others. People in Kenya who are born near rivers are likely to know how to swim because they begin to learn it from their childhood, especially if the river in Kenya has shallow edges or sides. For instance, I learnt how to swim on my own from the River Thiba in Kenya that was near our village when I was young and since we used to go for swimming in a shallow place until I was even able to swim in the deep side.
The activity of swimming in Kenya is something you cannot forget once you have learnt, and at times you can be taught how to swim by a person who knows it better. Teaching how to swim in Kenya always begin from a shallow end of water in either water bodies in Kenya or in swimming pools.
