For many people, Kenya is a top choice for their first African safari, and for good reason. The Kenya Tourism Board, less than a year after winning the award for Africa’s Leading Tourism Board, now looks forward to hosting this year’s World Travel Awards Africa Gala Ceremony.
“World Travel Awards is coming to Kenya at the right time after a successful and peaceful general election under a new constitution. This has further raised the country’s profile as a safe destination,” said KTB managing director Muriithi Ndegwa.
“That WTA has chosen Kenya for the African region ceremony as part of the world grand tour, is an endorsement of the country as a preferred tourism destination in the world.”
WTA president Graham Cooke added: “The selection of our hosts is fundamental to the success of our awards program, and Kenya as a nation has all the ingredients to rise to the challenge of hosting our Africa Ceremony – a warm, vibrant and progressive nation, brimming with enthusiasm and creativity.
“Tourism is vital to Kenya’s economy, contributing 12 per cent to its GDP and sustaining one in ten jobs. The future is bright for Kenya, given the nation’s overwhelming natural resources, its unrivalled wildlife experiences and pristine beaches.”
