Kenya is the first country in Africa and among the first in the world to receive the "Safe Journey" certification from the international organization "Rebuilding Travels".
The certificate concerns nations that have adapted their health and safety standards according to the request of the world protocols that tourism agencies want to see applied in international destinations.
These are the reasons for the recognition: "The Ministry of Tourism of Kenya towards Rebuilding Tourism has shown to understand that the safety of tourism involves training, education, investment in software and the understanding that ensuring safety is not a simplistic discipline. In an era of great change and challenges ranging from health to safety, Kenya has shown that it accepts that its tourism staff will have ongoing training and will need to be flexible enough to adapt its procedure to a changing environment.
The global body also noted that the Ministry has created a safer tourism product that has shown visitors that the country is doing everything possible to create a safe and healthy environment, working with international agencies, participating in regional agencies such as the African Tourism Board and interacting with tourism safety and wellness specialists.
"Nobody can guarantee 100% safety and that nobody will get sick - reads the website "Safe Travels" - What can be done is to provide the best possible tourist safety measures".
Among the measures adopted by the Government are the creation and updating of its health and guarantee protocols on a timely and regional basis, following the international guidelines of social distancing for both staff and visitors, recommending the use of masks and paying particular attention to transport hubs such as airport terminals.
That Kenya has shown itself to be "ahead" of other countries where tourism is one of the driving sectors, is a fact. Too bad that for now Europe does not recognize it and still does not allow its citizens to go there as tourists. We wait until September to see if they will take note of these improvements, at least in Kenya.
