Uhuru´s Domestic Tourism Campaign – Where are the Offers ?



#TembeaKenya – Kenya´s domestic Tourism campaign 2014 


President Kenyatta said the industry has also identified several other measures to complement government’s initiatives to revamp the tourism sector. The tourism stakeholders promised to offer better vacation package to Kenyans compared to what they offer international package tourists, estimated at about USD 60 (Ksh5,280) daily per person.
“The Government and Industry will develop an interactive Kenya Tourism Portal, within a week, to promote and manage booking and distribution of domestic guests under the Tourism Stimulus Program,” the President Uhuru said.

Now – Kenya´s Tourist Board, through its Magical Kenya brand has launched a viral digital-only marketing campaign dubbed #TembeaKenya aimed at promoting domestic tourism. The 45 seconds clip shows a local, “John” traversing the country’s destinations including the wild and beaches and engaging in various fun activities like game drive, a trip on an air balloon, playing golf among others, to the envy of his friends. The advert is themed “We are out there, What about you” and it seeks to encourage locals to enjoy the tourist destination that are on offer in the country. This video advertising comes along with some others, which were uoploaded a few days ago.

#tembeakenyaSofar so good – the campaign is online. We dont believe fully in the quality – but lets see how it will be pushed through the digital channels.

BUT – what we are missing till now:

Where are the promised residential offers from the tourism industry ?

Till this morning not a single tourims offer was present that came near to the ” promised ” 5.250,- Schilling. We know the THE tourism industry doesn´t exsist – they are fragmented in different stakeholder organisation. But at least we would like to see offers from thoses who adviced our President to come up with this kind of stimulus program.

The forests along the river banks are home to many birds, including local species such as the Palm Nut Vulture and the Vinaceous Dove. These forests are also home to many Leopards, often seen at dusk. The sight of one of these beautiful and elusive creatures is always a rare treat. Lions are also frequently seen on the riverbanks, and Cheetah can be found on the open plains. On rare occasion, packs of African Hunting Dogs are sighted passing through the reserve.
