Election don't stop safari tourism in Kenya

Lodge full in august in Mara for the Great Migration

17-07-2017 by redazione

The Great Migration Show in Kenya wins big on fears of violent elections.
At least this is what the figures say in August are full lodges, feral safari agencies and large influx of tourists from all over the world to enjoy the most engaging period of the year of equatorial savannah.
They are the same tour operators who have expressed their optimism by looking at the previous reservations and the very few cancellations in view of the August part-turn.
As stated at the National newspaper "The Standard" by the Kenya Tourism Board's Wausi Walya Communications Manager, Maasai Mara's facilities are almost in overbooking for August and are also traveling well in July.
This obviously is due to thousands of gnu and zebras trying to cross the Mara River in search of grass in the Tanzanian highlands, with the risk of ending among the mouths of voracious crocodiles.
Mahmud Janmohamed, CEO of TPS, one of the most important Eastern Africa safari agencies and owner of an exclusive lodge overlooking the migratory route, said reservations for this month were on the backdrop of last year and only slightly Less in August.
"We have not yet had any cancellation," he said at the Standards, "and we trust that the climate of electoral nervousness that is breathed will remain confined in political environments and judicial limits, and will not go down the streets."
Mohammed Hersi, chairman of the Kenya Tourist Federation, which includes hotelier, tour operators and tour operators in the country, and also author of articles appeared on our portal, also spoke about this issue.
"So far the election campaign has been conducted in a respectful and civilized manner," Hersi said, "hotels are generally working this year by 20 to 25 percent more than last year. Too alarming stocks, tourists are not overly concerned about the election. "
