Speaking during the World Tourism Day fete in Nairobi, Keziah Odemba, director of tourism, Kenya said that the expected multibillion-shilling investments showed that Kenya's tourism projections were positive.The investors include Swiss Lenana Motel, Radisson Blu, Villa Rosa Kempinski, Golden Tulip, Amber, Ibis Styles and other brands.

“It is cheaper to fly from Dar es Salaam to Kigali than it is to fly from Nairobi to Mombasa. Hotels also need to come up with an innovative pricing model that embraces cheaper pricing for advance family bookings for locals,” commented Cyrus Onyiego, online travel marketer, Jumia Country Manager.
