Kenya broadening to bird watching as a market tourism attraction
With several tourist attraction sites for example lakes and wildlife parks, the government of Kenya is focusing on bird watching in its effort to diversify its tourism products from the ordinary packages. The Baringo County Government in Kenya is concentrating on over 50 million Kenya Shillings in yearly income from the bird watching business, a brand new tourism product in this industry. Wesley Keitany the County Cabinet Secretary for Tourism spoke on arrival from a worldwide bird fair held in Rutland – Leicester City UK said that this county would entirely exploit its significant opportunity of bird watching.
Keitany added that with over 500 species of bird in Lake Baringo and around 490 near Lake Bogoria, plus a number of scattered birds living on the shrubs plus cliffs, Baringo continues to be one of the biggest birding destinations in the entire world, with the highest count of gorgeous bird species which unfortunately are still untapped. He added that this county will as well launch a yearly bird-migration flyway in the Tugumoi region, an exceptional migratory route that is frequented by various birds in November coming from France and Russia, in addition to other European nations. Wesley Keitany contacted the organizers of the renowned UK Bird Fair who consented to host the very first bird fair on the African continent, on a date which will be decided upon next year in Baringo. Tourism is nonetheless, thriving in Lake Bogoria Game Reserve as over 1.5 million migratory beautiful flamingoes flock this lake for food and its conducive weather.
