More Kenyans now holidaying at home, says research

More Kenyans are holidaying at home, according to new research that could interest those considering property investment in the country. Figures published by the Kenya Wildlife Service this week - and quoted by the Associated Press -revealed that the number of Kenyans visiting national parks has risen by 55 per cent over the last five years. It is thought that more Kenyans are middle class and therefore have a disposable income that will allow them to spend money in their own country. Mary Ogari, a government civil servant, told the news provider that there are many excellent attractions to see in the country. "It's good to show the children the animals of their country. We live in an apartment block here in Nairobi, so the park is a good place to come out to relax," she added. Meanwhile, Kenya's carbon emissions are much lower than in Britain, according to wdm.org.uk.
