The tourism sector in Northern areas of Kenya has received a significant boost from the European Union after donating equipment worth (3.5 Million Euros) Ksh 400Million.

The equipment is set to improve infrastructure game reserves and community conservancies.

Some of the equipment received include backhoe, excavators, graders, tractor, a functional drilling machine and state of the art workshop trailer with a 10,000-liter water tank.

The set equipment is to be shared across the 39 conservancies in Garissa, Isiolo, Marsabit, Samburu, and Laikipia among other regions supported by Nothern Rangelands Trust (NRT).

Speaking at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy when handing over the equipment to the NRT, the EU head of development cooperation, Hubert Perr, said that the material will go a long way towards improving the livelihoods of the people in Northern Kenya by supporting their initiatives to conserve nature and wildlife, hence boosting revenue collection as well as providing employment opportunities for locals.

Isiolo County Executive in charge of Tourism, Tiya Galgalo, said that the move would help complement efforts by the County governments to restore confidence in local tourist attraction sites, especially game reserves.
