Wildlife is Kenya’s natural premium heritage. The Ministry of Tourism is committed to partnering with initiatives geared towards preserving Kenya’s wildlife. This is mainly because the country is home to the famous big five which form part of the center piece for Tourism.
According to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), Kenya is among countries that have made significant progress in adopting appropriate legislations towards combating illegal trade in wildlife.  This is in tandem with the 2015 United Nations resolution which requires countries to take decisive steps at the national level to prevent, combat and eradicate the illegal trade in wildlife, on both the supply and demand sides, including strengthening the legislation necessary for the prevention, investigation and prosecution.  On this front, Kenya is committed and has made it a top priority to secure a future for wildlife, sustain the beauty and ecological integrity by putting in place laws that protect endangered species such as elephants and rhinos as well as working together with stakeholders to conserve our natural heritage.

Tourism is one of the most important social-economic sectors in Kenya. The sector contributes a total of 10.5% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employs about 9.2 % (206,000) of the total wage workforce in the country (WTTC, 2015). The sector has high multiplier effects as its growth stimulates further development in other sectors of the economy. The Kenya Vision 2030 blueprint recognizes the importance of the sector and envisages Kenya to be among the leading long haul tourist destinations in the world, offering a high value, distinct and diverse visitor experience.

The country boasts of numerous unique tourist attractions and beautiful landscape ranging from the open savanna, coastal beaches, deep tropical forests, a snowcapped mountain, alpine meadows, coral reefs, caves, beaches and river deltas. Kenya is also a haven of natural wonders, the most memorable being the Wildebeest Migration one of the Seven New Wonders of the world. Kenya is also home to the Big Five and has won international acclaim as the authentic wildlife safari destination. Visitors who toured Kenya, have in the latest Country Brand Index (CBI), demonstrated 82% brand loyalty with the main contributing factor being their generosity, warmth and hospitality of the Kenyan people.

The last fifty years have seen Kenya develop into a very strong economy and the undisputed trendsetter in many fields. The country has consistently anchored her social political and economic development on audacious development plans and has come to be known as the region’s diplomatic capital. The country’s record in peace keeping, housing of refugees and negotiations of peace treaties for neighboring countries, has earned her this coveted position as Africa’s champion for peace. In addition, Kenya is home to the only United Nations headquarters outside of Europe with two agencies; UNEP and UN Habitat also based in Nairobi.

Kenya is also a corporate headquarter of global multinationals that have set base in Africa. In the World Bank report, 2015 Kenya was one of the most improved countries in the Ease of Doing Business. The 2015 February issue of Fortune Magazine named Kenya as the best African emerging economy to invest in due to accelerated infrastructure development and a stable political and macroeconomic environment. In addition, Kenya stands out to leverage on its diversified economy that is increasingly attracting inflows from a strong service sector compared to other large African economies that are supported by extractive industries such as oil, gas and minerals. All these go a long way in demonstrating that amongst all other countries in Africa, Kenya is the preferred place to live, visit and invest.

Since the 1960s, Kenya’s dominance in the middle and long distance marathons remains unchallenged. Kenya elite runners have dominated the major world marathons, like New York, Boston, London, Paris, Berlin just to name a few and is currently world’s number one in IAAF World Championships, 2015. Kenya has produced more world class athletes, more world record holders and more Olympic Medalists in long distance running than any other country. Recently, Kenya bagged the Main Cup at the World Rugby Sevens Singapore after pulling off a stunning 30-7 upset victory over Fiji making it the home of champions.

Kenya is truly Africa’s rising star the natural choice for investment, trade, tourism and residence.

Karibu and Make It Kenya!
