Just the era before the pandemic, Kenya tourism was focused on the wildlife safari destination because the country features several wildlife destination areas and the beaches that do surround the coastline. But now the Kenyan tourism stakeholders are investing much into farm tourism other than the beaches and the national parks and the game reserves that are widely known.

In order to promote the farm tours, the Kenyan tourism board has started running promotional programs across the country and on their several virtual platforms to advertise the farm tours in order to pull the attention of both local and foreign visitors to come and spend some dollars within the Kenyan economy.

The establishment of farm tourism by the Kenyan government doesn’t rule out that Kenya is majorly known for its huge population of wildlife and leisure tourism in form of beaches but rather will act as a supplement to the already existing tourism produces and services.

Kenya will always diversify the products and the tourist experiences across the country to enhance its wider gap of the tourism products and also enable visitors and provide them the availability of options. The introduction of farm tourism in Kenya will as well give competitive age to Kenya’s industry other than competitors.
