Kenya tourism earnings double as arrivals soar
Kenya's tourism earnings more than doubled to 167.1 billion shillings in January to August from 83 billion shillings in the same period a year ago, Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala said on Friday.
Balala said in a statement the earnings were as a result of a 91% rise in the number of international visitors to 924,812 partly due to a recovery from the pandemic, and forecasts strong growth to the end of the year.
Tourism alongside horticulture, tea and remittances are Kenya's top foreign exchange earners.
