Kenya’s leading hotels, including Tribe Hotel, Ole Sereni and DusitD2, stopped operations days after travel restrictions and social distance rules were imposed, with the iconic Fairmont Norfolk shutting down indefinitely and firing its employees. The 51-year old Intercontinental Hotel (Nairobi) followed suit, closing down its Kenyan subsidiary and sending home all its staff early August. The Kenyan government has however set aside Ksh500million to recover the hospitality industry, while urging for domestic tourism to keep the industry afloat.
