King Charles III’s Visit to Increase the Number of UK Tourists Coming to Kenya 

1 min read

Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) says that the visit by King Charles III will put Kenya firmly on the map for potential tourists and investors in the UK and beyond.

Tourism stakeholders believe that Their Majesties’ visit to the country will be a major boost to the tourism sector. 

”This visit will undoubtedly increase the number of UK tourists coming to Kenya and will allow us to show the best of Kenya to people in the Commonwealth and around the world,” KTB acting CEO John Chirchir said. 

Kenya is the first country on the continent to enter into a trade agreement with the UK worth Sh167 billion annually, with a capacity for growth. 

The UK is among the top three tourist source markets to Kenya after the US and Uganda.

Between January and August this year, Kenya received 101,167 visitors from the UK up from 83,126 arrivals in the same period last year, an increase of 21.7 percent.
