A Message from the KWS Director
The Kenya Wildlife Service Tour Planner covers all of Kenya's parks and reserves.Those of you who operate here, or specialise in African travel, will be familiar with many of these locations. However, we hope that some of the information, particularly about the lesser known areas, will be of interest.
The Kenya Wildlife Service's role is as diverse as the areas in which we operate. Our Wildlife conservation programmes are well documented and increasingly successful in terms of saving endangered and threatened species and important habitats.
Our Anti-poaching Unit, second to none, is well-equipped, trained and experienced. As well as safeguarding the parks and reserves, our goal is to re-open and protect traditional migration corridors which have been used for centuries by the wildlife in East Africa.
Rare and fascinating species abound here in Kenya. They include the high altitude bongo, the rare forest antelope to giant sea turtles and the unique dugong, the origin of mermaid legend.
Equally important is the Kenya Wildlife Community Service. We work closely with the people who live alongside the wildlife, balancing socio-economic and cultural needs with the preservation of wildlife and habitat.
We have expanded our role in supporting the needs of the travel industry, which brings visitors to our gates. "Eco" and "Recreation" tourism is a growth sector of the industry and Kenya has more to offer than just the "Big Five". Walking, riding, camping, birdwatching, mountain and rock-climbing are all available and accessible set against breathtaking and diverse landscapes.
We aim to support your marketing and sales plans by listening to your comments and suggestions, offering you new ideas to tempt your clients as well as researching and updating facilities and attractions to encourage wider use of the parks and reserves.
This brochure has been produced by the K.W.S Tourism Department as first of customer service to the travel trade. We welcome your views and suggestions.
