Kenya holidays ‘increasing in popularity’

More and more people are making their way to Kenya in order to sample the delights it has to offer.

According to the Kenya Tourist Board, the first quarter of 2011 brought record-breaking arrivals figures as many chose Kenya holidays.

The year-on-year hike in January was nearly 40 per cent, while UK arrivals for the three-month period swelled by ten per cent when compared to the same quarter in 2010.

If this pattern continues to develop, the number of individuals choosing to go on holidays to Kenya will grow for the rest of 2011.

Angie Sloan, Kenya Tourist Board UK director, noted that Tsavo National Park offers individuals the chance to sample both a safari experience and a coastal retreat.

"Tsavo West is rich in wildlife and is the home of over 600 species of bird. It is famous for the Mzima Springs, which include a unique underwater hippo observatory," she added.
