British tourists being urged to visit Kenya

There could be more opportunities for investing in property in Kenya as British travellers are being urged to visit the country.

It is being marketed to Britons as the 'activity capital of Africa', with Angie Sloan, regional director of the Kenya Tourist Board, highlighting its glacial mountains and dramatic river valleys, wide-open grasslands and "coral reefs along the Indian Ocean".

Investors could look at properties along the Tana River, which is popular with white water rafters.

Ms Sloan said that it is 95 kilometres outside Nairobi and is one of the main white water rafting rivers in Kenya.

"Individuals looking for a thrill will enjoy a full day of rafting through a combination of class two to five white water rapids and relaxing river drifts," she said.

Meanwhile, visitors can try rock climbing on Mount Ololokwe, which is 30 kilometres north of Samburu Reserve.

Her comments come after speakers at Reuters Africa Investment Summit said that Kenya is one of seven sub-Saharan African countries that are attracting major investment activity.ADNFCR-2019-ID-800466663-ADNFCR
