Christmas holidays, Kenya at the top for italians

TTG and tourism portals say it's a battle with Zanzibar and Thai

21-10-2017 by redazione

Kenya is one of the most requested destinations by Italians for Christmas and New Year.
Among the so-called "long-haul"destinations, the African country is on the podium with Zanzibar and Thailand.
This is what emerges from the recent edition of the TTG, the tourism fair in Rimini, which has seen a return of interest from Watamu in particular.
"There are great sensations - comments Pietro Mastella, marketing manager of Jacaranda Resort, present at the event - charter companies are seriously thinking about increasing flights for the holiday season, and there may also be other novelties".
Even the holiday booking portals indicate that Kenya is one of the most sought after destinations, already starting from the bridge of the Immaculate Conception, but above all after Christmas. According to speedvacanze. it, Kenya receives great interest for the possibility of combining the safari with a few days of sea, and is sought by travelers who do not make money problems, as is the case with Zanzibar, where the offer sea + safari certainly costs more because it provides the plane, while for example Watamu or Diani can be connected by road to parks and reserves, or you choose solutions from Nairobi to Maasai.
According to the travel and booking portals, two out of three Italians will choose this winter a holiday of more than three days, and half of them plan a "escape" to hot countries, while others will choose the mountain.
Tour operators that have not been so present and aggressive on the offer of the Kenyan coast for a long time are again emerging in the travel agencies: Turisanda, Settemari, Eden, Vera Tour and Alpitour in the lead.
But also the "alternative packages" between bed&breakfast, ecolodge and combined solutions are in high demand, with some additional problems for flights.
