Why the number of foreign tourists visiting Kenya has been on the decline in the recent past
  • Deterioration of transport infrastructure making travel treacherous and uncomfortable
  • Insecurity due to politically instigated tribal clashes
  • Negative publicity externally by the international/foreign media
  • Poor management of wildlife resources which have been a major tourist attraction
  • Competition from alternative tourist destinations/countries
  • Unfavourable climate e.g. due to the El-Niño weather phenomenon
  • Shortage of well-trained personnel in the tourism industry
  • Harassment of tourists by robbers or thieves while they are on expeditions
  • Rising cost of holiday making
  • Inadequate promotional activities abroad
  • Economic recession/poor performance of economies in Europe making people unable to afford tours
  • Recent killings of tourists e.g. near Aberdare’s and Maasai Mara national parks
  • Opening up of new destinations in Tanzania, South Africa and Uganda
