Kenya Cuts Safari Fees To Revive Tourism

Kenya lowered entry fees to game parks for local citizens and foreign visitors by 50% for a year, starting July 1, as the nation seeks to revive its tourism industry that has been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

The sector is the East African nation’s third-biggest foreign-exchange earner after remittances and agricultural exports.

The country recorded 1.44 million visitors between July last year and February 2020, compared with 1.42 million a year earlier.
