Kenya is one the places that come to mind when we think of Safari and adventure with great hospitality. There are only a few places on our planet that conjure such a drive for adventure & romance. The whole country is full of mind-blowing landscapes and cultures that the diversity of things you can do there dazzles all who visit.
Kenya not only offers the best of Safari and lush landscapes but the hospitality that you will receive from the most humble people makes the whole trip a memory for a lifetime.
Since we all have been hit badly by the financial crisis caused by the pandemic, tourism in Africa has been majorly affected. Most Safari tours work in conjunction with the local support and businesses run by families with almost no financial aid from the governments. Restrictions have forced many businesses to close and send their employees home with no indication of when businesses are set to resume. According to Kenya’s statistics office, accommodation and food service crashed 57.9%. There has been a loss of 110 billion Kenyan shillings, approx 1.3 Australian billion dollars.
We Australians love to travel! Don’t we? And many of have Safari on the bucket list. We are still not sure when the restrictions will ease but at least we can plan now to visit the amazing continent of Africa and also support the locals who just rely on tourism.
