Description

Kenya's tourist arrivals rose 16.7 percent in 2016 boosted by improved security and advertising in source markets.The East African nation last year received a over 800,000 tourists through Jomo Kenyatta international airport in the capital Nairobi and Moi international airport in Mombasa. Data indicates that last year there was change in trends for Kenya's tourist sources, with arrivals from the United States, China and India going up. The rise in tourist arrivals is good news to the tourism stakeholders as the sector was on its knees following persistent attacks from the Somalia terror group Al-Shabaab. Due to improved security, several western nations such as the United States, UK and France lifted travel advisories they had placed on Kenya. The government further increased initiatives to revive the sector, which was once the country's highest foreign exchange earner.
