As Kenya prepares to open up to international visitors, the tourism sector has developed tourism and hospitality protocols on health and safety to mitigate the effects of the disruptions caused by the COVID 19 disease in business and people’s livelihoods. Actors in the tourism sector have therefore, through adoption of these protocols, taken responsibility of ensuring that destination Kenya is safe for tourism business. The objectives of the protocols are to:

a. Inculcate institutional Operational and Staff Preparedness to ensure service provision meets World Health Organization guidelines and Kenya’s Ministry of Health measures aimed at preventing spread of covid-19.
b. Ensure a safe experience for visitors/guests and service providers.
c. Rebuild trust & confidence hence increase and sustain demand for holiday and investmentnin the destination.
d. Implement enabling policies and guidelines thus provide a step by step process of a careful reopening and restart of business in the tourism sector.

To all visitors from near and far, Magical Kenya awaits. Karibuni, we are ready to receive you.
