Tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy; being a top foreign exchange earner and a high contributor to the national GDP, the industry remains a key tool for the country’s prosperity. In 2018, the travel and tourism sector in Kenya grew by 5.6% ahead of the normal global average of 3.9% contributing KShs.790B towards the country’s economy and adding 1.1 million jobs. According to the World Travel & Tourism Council report, Kenya is now positioned as the third largest tourism economy in Sub-Saharan Africa coming after South Africa and Nigeria.
