Watamu, election do not stop tourism

Tour Operators bring guests, domestic tourism is up

27-10-2017 di redazione

Tourism in Watamu is by now a phenomenon in its own right from every possible vicissitude of Kenya.
This is a fact by now well established and the good news is that even in low season, tourists learn to appreciate the beaches of the "pearl of the Indian Ocean" and the nature of Kenya's coast, being able to stay in the quietest and most secluded tourist resort.
Here the echoes of the political crisis in Nairobi and Lake Victoria, which frankly distant light years from Watamu, as well as hundreds of kilometers, do not arrive stronger than the twittering of the colorful birds in the morning.
The Italian Tour Operators who bet on Kenya at the beginning of the season, are working well, with occupations over 40% that for this period are a godsend, and an ancillary that allows you not to close the facilities and give continuous work to many local people who count on that salary to live and feed their families.
But they are not only Italians, but also tourists, with safaris and sea excursions in addition to the "holiday package": in this period come the first winter holidaymakers, who will stop here five or six months, taking full advantage of the possibilities given by the tourist visa and its legal extension.
In addition, some resorts and villages also host tourism from the East, with India and China in the lead, and local, with conventions and weddings.
The 7 Islands Resort, for example, is constantly booked by groups of associations (days ago there were 150 university students, and Papa Remo beach organized for them a Saturday evening of beach party).
Watamu, increasingly a fixed point and a destination in its own right, for everyone and throughout the year.
