ByThe Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis

Even though the Government now realizes the superiority of up-market or a blend of upmarket and mass tourism, attracting high-level tourism is a difficult task. The present situation in the tourism sector is attributable to lack of adequate reflection, consultation, and planning.
