What are the opportunities in Kenya?
Craft House is assisting with a new hotel development in Naivasha, Kenya including a hotel, villas, golf course and wellness center. The excitement here illustrates a number of positive factors for Kenya’s tourism. The first is there is that more and more investment going into secondary and tertiary cities in the country – rather than pure focus on Nairobi. The second points to the fact that Kenya’s growing middle class is beginning to transform domestic tourism numbers. Domestic tourism is increasing – both leisure and corporate business – to levels never seen before. And finally, golf and health/fitness. Kenya’s focus on golf tourism has been gaining momentum over the past 3 years – as international players recognise the climate and the beauty of Kenya’s courses compete with other world class golf destinations. What else? Professional and well run spas are also competing with spas one might find in places like New York, London and Paris.
Who knows what's next.
