Government to Open Park Space to International Hotel Brands

Author 3 years ago

By Moses Adongo

The government through the ministry of tourism is offering global hotel owners spaces in national parks in a move that is targeted to improve tourism investment outside Nairobi and Mombasa.
According to Tourism CS Najib Balala, the incentive is a decision by the government to attract the creme de la cremes in the industry like Hyatta, Radisson and Marriott International to spread their establishments to other towns other than Nairobi.
“You should build not only a city or town hotel but also go to the national parks and create a circuit. We are looking into opportunities for new sites in the national parks for brands with two or more hotels in Kenya,” said Mr. Balala while addressing hotel owners and managers during the Africa Hotel Investment Forum.
There has been mushrooming investment into Africa’s hotel space and Kenya, one of the top tourist destinations, is looking to attract a greater share of these investments.
With rapidly growing game parks like Marsabit, Meru, Tsavo, Ol Donyo Sabuk, Ruma and Amboseli among others, the government is confident attracting hotel investment in these settlements will boost not only travel but also economic activities.
CS Balala revealed that already the ministry is in talks with stakeholders in the parks and Kenya Wildlife officials to identify spaces in the national parks for hotel development without interfering with the wildlife.
Despite the local hotel investors, like Sarova, already setting spaces in few parks within the country, the government is looking to attract international brands with a capital muscle to fully exploit these spaces.
