Acacia Africa Adds Nairobi Park Stay To Its 2018 Collection

Acacia Africa will be adding a Nairobi Park Stay to its 2018 collection - a game drive in Nairobi National Park, Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage visit, return airport transfers, all food and drink and twin share ensuite accommodation at a tented camp (inside Nairobi National Park) included in the three day break.

Arno Delport, Sales & Marketing Manager at Acacia Africa comments, “A successful black rhino sanctuary, Nairobi National Park is the only protected area in the world with such a huge variety of animals and birds close to a capital city, the budget friendly safari extension ideal for travellers starting or ending a tour in Nairobi.”

The city is also a jumping off point for the new Standard Gauge Railway and its nonstop passenger train, the Madaraka Express. Operating twice daily between Nairobi and Mombasa, the railway has made the country’s coast and palm-fringed white sand beaches more accessible, the fare costing only 700 Kenyan shillings (around £6pp) for economy class and 3,000 Kenyan shillings (around £22pp) for first class. 

Earlier this year, the UK reclaimed its status as the top tourism market into Kenya with figures up 12.3% year-on-year for the first quarter of 2017. And, despite the issues surrounding the recent election, according to  the UNWTO, international tourist arrivals to country rose by 10% to 723,000 visitors between January and September, when compared with the same period in 2016.

Delport continues, “Kenya continues to be one of our best performing destinations, and a unique offering, our new Nairobi Park Stay will encourage clients to extend their overland safari with an additional break in the capital.”
