Kenya Tourism Board to Livestream Virtual Safari Tours
Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Tourism Najib Balala has launched a virtual Safari livestream initiative to showcase game safaris in some parks and reserves across the country.
You will now be able to take a virtual Safari right from your sitting room.
"This venture which begins here at the Nairobi National park will allow us to document our diverse wildlife in the National Parks and game reserves, thrilling adventures, beautiful lodges, and unique cultures and conservation projects that Kenya has become world-famous for.
We shall be live streaming and sharing this content every week to bring Kenya to Kenyans and to the world at large," ~ CS Najib Balala said.
The campaign will go on for six weeks across the country and will be part of the ongoing Magic Awaits campaign led by the Kenya Tourism Board.
Magic Awaits campaigns aims at ensuring that the world is connected to Kenya even during the current COVID-19 lockdown which has restricted movement globally.
"Our international tourism business is completely cut off and we have to still share destination memories with travellers and that is why we are unveiling a virtual tour safari to connect visitors with the destination," ~ the Cabinet Secretary added.
This follows a trend where countries have come up with online tours as quest for discovery shifts to virtual, with demand for indoor activities on the rise necessitated by the COVID-19 crisis.
Kenya Tourism Board CEO, Dr Betty Radier said that the board is working to ensure people around the world are connected to the destination during this period.
