This new partnership comes at a time when local and regional tourism is improving following campaigns by the government to focus more on domestic and regional visitors as well as the relaxation of travel restrictions by different countries in the world following the reduced number covid infections across the globe.

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.
