I am a Hotel Tours and Travel professional, having joined the Tourism Industry in Kenya in 1994. I was worked in Sales & Marketing at Sarova Hotels for 10 years before moving on to set up Destination Connect – a Tour & Travel Company based in Nairobi Kenya. Destination Connect has existed since October 2004 and I have been its Managing Director since inception.
We handle both Inbound and Outbound Tours from Nairobi and our specialty Markets are Africa, the Gulf Countries, Middle East, and the Far East.
My view is that Travel will start being rebuilt from a very conservative perspective. Travelers will want to travel to nearby attractions, mainly due to Government and Health restrictions that may still be in place. Travelers will also not have big budgets that are required to facilitate long haul International Travel.
Our Business focuses even before COVID – 19 was geared towards Domestic and Regional Travel (within Africa) and we intend to intensify our efforts in facilitating travels to these nearby attractions.
