British agency lures travellers to Kenya

19 June 2014, 10:35

Nairobi - Kenya Safari has expanded its product offering to lure tourists into Kenya amid the British government dissuading its citizens from visiting the country.

The offering includes a ten-day Highlands to Coast package in Kenya.

It comes hot on the heels of the United Kingdom issuing a travel advisory to citizens against visiting Kenya due to the rising insecurity fears largely blamed on the Al Shabaab terror group.

In a statement, Kenya Safari said it had added the most versatile traveler package yet to their ever-expanding portfolio in the form of their 10-day Highlands to Coast offering.

It added that it had tightly condensed all of the experiences that matter into a wholly competitive £1 162 per person package.

Though the tourism sector was affected by the travel advisories, the return of Kenya Safari with a Highlands to Coast package is seen as a sign that more travel agencies will follow suit despite the security warnings and travel advisories by their countries of origins.

“All of Kenya Safari’s travel packages focus on cultural sightseeing and natural splendour as well as the incorporation of relaxing hideaways, ideal for couples looking to pursue an adventurous, yet soothing honeymoon or avid safari goers who have never allowed themselves to unwind between animal spotting,” read the Kenya Safari statement.

Its offer comes on the back of terror attacks, the most recent being the Mpeketoni onslaught that claimed more than 50 lives this past weekend.

Te subsequent travel advisories affected even places where terror attacks had not been reported in, including Maasai Mara and other parts of the Rift Valley.
