Kenya’s tourism revenue increases by 6.4%Kenya has long been a popular holiday destination, particularly for those wanting to see African wildlife on a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience. Despite the current economic climate, Kenya has managed to retain its reputation as a great holiday destination and has even seen tourism revenue increase by 6.4% since last year.

In the last 6 months, Kenya made Sh38.7 billion from tourism, compared to Sh36.4 billion from the same period in 2011.

Kenya’s biggest market for tourists is Europe and, despite the current economic climate in the area, the African country is still an incredibly popular choice for holidaymakers. A Kenyan safari or beach holiday seems to be most popular with UK residents who are responsible for the largest share in arrivals to the country.

Due to the country’s tourism success, the government has increased the budget allocated to the Kenya Tourism Board, good news for anyone looking for fantastic holidays for singles who want to combine amazing wildlife encounters with a relaxing beach holiday.
