Why in august Kenya will be full of tourists

Many reservations, new tour operators, flights and...

There is great optimism about the possible influx of tourists from all over the world into Kenya next August.
As we have already reported in recent days, some of the most popular flight booking sites, including Expedia and Volagratis, receive contacts to Nairobi and Mombasa in industrial quantities from the end of July until at least mid-September.
The safari agencies in Nairobi are already marking the "sold out" for Maasai Mara and also for Samburu and Turkana.
If on the one hand the hospitality on the banks of the Mara is a consolidated habit of the month of August, due to the great migration, the return of more alternative and often more expensive destinations such as Turkana, is a pleasant novelty, also dictated by the success of certain realities of ecotourism and offering sustainable holidays.
Not only excursions to see increasingly rare animals such as rhinos, but also stays in conservation realities that are having international popularity, perhaps driven by important testimonials. This is the case with Reteti, a sanctuary and nursery for elephants, which is now the focus of media attention (the famous American singer Dave Matthews has also composed a song for the conservancy of Samburu), but also places of enchantment such as Samburu Rhino have few free places in August.
But Kenya, of course, even in August, which is not really the equatorial summer, is not only savannah.
Even on the coast the operators of the sector smile.
"We already have bookings until the end of September in both our resorts - explains Roberto Lenzi, owner of the family group of the same name that owns 7Islands Resort and Crystal Bay, as well as the splendid Papa Remo Beach location - and we plan to continue throughout the season with international customers and local tourism, which can allow us to work throughout the year, so as to give continuous work to dozens and dozens of our employees.
If Watamu laughs at seaside tourism, sports and nature, Malindi will also be able to count on many presences, especially with regard to rental situations, even throughout the month, and the owners of houses and villas.
I stormed not only the Ethiopian and Turkish flights over Mombasa, and the "only flights" of the few charters available since mid-July, but also the flights of the renewed Rome-Malindi route via Nairobi, even if the booking directly on the website of the Kenyan national airline remains difficult and inconstant and hopefully the situation will improve, after the inauguration of the route that will take place next June 10.
