Tourism: A report says that Uganda is still Kenya’s top regional tourism source market.

According to a new report, Uganda is still Kenya’s top regional source market for tourism. Despite a slight decline in overall numbers in 2019.

The report, released by Kenya’s Tourism Research Institute. Says that Uganda accounted for 24 percent of all international visitors to the country last year. Uganda was followed by Tanzania (20 percent), USA (10 percent), UK (7 percent), and India (6 percent). The report also highlighted the importance of regional tourism to Kenya’s economy. Noting that it accounted for over two-thirds of all international arrivals.

Uganda the  Top Tourism Source Market For Kenya

Uganda has, for another year running, retained its spot as Kenya‘s biggest tourism source market in the region, according to new data released by the tourism authorities in Nairobi.
The new Kenya‘s tourism sector performance report for 2022, released Wednesday at the Fairmont Norfolk Hotel in Nairobi by the country‘s Tourism Cabinet Secretary Peninah Malonza. Contained data noting that Uganda contributed 12 percent of total arrivals to Kenya in 2022, coming only second to the United States which took the top overall spot with a 16 percent contribution.

Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo both registered visitors to Kenya, with Burundi standing at 22,291 and the Democratic Republic of Congo at 21,428.
The report further reveals that African visitors comprised 641,975 of the total arrivals, representing 43.3 percent; the majority of whom were mainly coming for business and to visit friends and family. The United Kingdom was the second largest tourism source market for Kenya, with a total of 246,504 arrivals. Accounting for a 16.5 percent share of the total arrivals.

The country‘s earnings grew by 83 percent, increasing from Ksh146.51 billion ($1.2 billion) in 2021 to Ksh268.09 billion ($2.1 billion) in the same period.

The report states that the growth can be attributed to many countries easing their Covid19 restrictions, allowing travel and various initiatives implemented by the tourism sector and the government. Furthermore, Ms Malonza declared that Kenya will focus on further increasing these numbers in 2023 by developing new strategies intended to benefit a larger population. Thereby improving the livelihoods of Kenyans.
