Kenya holidays ‘popular among all’

It appears the popularity of vacations to Africa is on the rise among people from all over the world, with individuals from various nations making their way to the continent.

Indeed, Tourism-Review.com has noted increasing numbers of people from India are heading off on Kenya holidays, with people from the country becoming the fifth most prominent tourist group to the African nation.

Replacing France in the top five – which is also made up by the UK, USA, Italy and Germany – India's inclusion suggests vacationers from further afield are starting to realise the benefits to be had from holidaying in Kenya.

According to the website, the move could suggest an upturn in tourist numbers from other Asian countries, as well as Russia and Brazil, in the near future.

Moreover, Kenyan tourism is expected to reach 20 per cent by the end of the year, with officials hoping the nation can emulate the example of Egypt – home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World in the form of the Great Pyramid of Giza – which welcomed 1.8 million visitors from Russia last year.
