Since the shutting of Kenya airspace due to Corona pandemic, the country has finally opened its skies for over 120 countries who will exempted from quarantine for 14 days.

This means tourists from these countries can now fly in and enjoy the amazing Kenya tourism packages on offer.

Other countries in the list are China, UAE, Uganda, Tanzania Morocco, Zimbabwe, Thailand, Rwanda, USA and Canada.

Here is the full list of countries exempted from 14 days mandatory quarantine:

 


The Kenya government retaliated that all tourists wishing to visit Kenya must have a negative Covid-19 test that is 96 hours before traveling. These only apply to countries that have low-medium reported infections.

Travelers will have to undergo 14 days mandatory quarantine if they:

·         Have temperature more than 37.5 0 (99.5F)

·         Problem with breathing

·         Have persistent cough

·         From countries with High risk of corona virus transmission.

 


Up to 80 percent of bookings in the Kenya tourism industry are going to be adversely affected due to corona virus epidemic.



As more cases of the virus are being reported across African countries, the Kenya government has suspended travel from countries that have reported corona virus cases. 

The ban was made by President Uhuru Kenyatta when addressing journalist, “The government is suspending travel for all persons coming into Kenya from any country with reported coronavirus cases. Only Kenyan citizens and any foreigners with valid residence permits will be allowed to come in provided they proceed on self-quarantine or to a government designated quarantine facility.”

The impact is going to hurt other areas of the economy that depend directly or indirectly on the tourism industry.
The closure of schools and other institution of learning is a big blow to domestic tourism. Student from learning institution accounts for almost 40 percent the Kenyan domestic tourism.

“We have suspended learning in all our education institutions with immediate effect. Consequently, and to facilitate a phased approach, primary and secondary day schools are to suspend operations from tomorrow,” Said the president.

Most school trips involve academic trips to museum, national parks and other historical sites.

For those tourists who are in Kenya, the ban on the gathering, including social gathering will limit their experiences in Kenya.

Until this epidemic that has engulfed the globe in fear is dealt with, tourism in Kenya and the rest of the world is going to be affected.

Majority of them drown will other are eaten by crocodile. Don't forget hundreds of Lions, Leopards, hyena and other carnivorous a waits on the other side of the river.
