“Just been involved in a road accident. Everyone who was on board is alive. We are enroute to the hospital. Please keep us in your prayers,” she posted on Instagram.
“My younger sister has been involved in a road accident on the way to Amboseli. She and her boyfriend are hurt and are being taken to the hospital now. Everyone who was in the van with them is alive and we thank God,” her sister reiterated.
The opening of the hospitality industry has seen an increase in domestic tourism as Kenyans explore local destinations.
Many tourist sites have reduced fees in order to attract Kenyans who for many years have stayed away due to expensive rates.
Tourism CS Najib Balala, on Thursday, July 2, announced the reduction of entry fees to all Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) game parks and reserves by up to 50%
The new changes will apply for all categories of tourists (local, residents and international) effective July 1, 2020, for one year. KWS also gave a one-year moratorium to lodge owners in its parks and reserves, for rent payment starting July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021.
The resumption of international flights is also expected to give the hospitality industry a huge boost.File image of the Nairobi National ParkFileKWS
