Nairobi sends delegation to sell Kenya in Germany

Nairobi County is among four county governments showcasing Kenyan tourism products at the International Tourism Boerse (ITB) in Berlin, Germany.

According to Nairobi tourism official Sally Ragga, the delegation seeks to market the county in the Berlin travel show to woo German tourists and others from across the globe.

“The county is participating in the Berlin travel show for the first time with the aim of positioning Kenya’s capital as a destination of choice for international tourists from across the world,” she said.

Among the tourist attractions being showcased at the ITB Berlin include the Nairobi National Park, Nairobi National Museum, Railways Museum, the Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi Snake Park, and the Giraffe Centre.

The county is also showcasing the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) to help attract more international conferences to Nairobi.

The counties of Mombasa, Kwale and Uasin Gishu are also participating in the travel trade fair.

The Kenyan tourism industry has suffered a decline in the past three years because of rising terror attacks in the country.

In 2015, 25 percent fall in visitor numbers was recorded in the tourism industry according to the Kenya Tourism Board figures.
