British holiday companies and Kenya safaris holiday specialists are slashing their prices for New Year holidays and flights to Kenya and Nairobi in an attempt to attract new visitors to the African region.

UK travel companies slash Kenya holidays prices

Travellers booking Kenya holidays and Kenya safaris over the next few weeks will be able to take advantage of a number of discounts being provided by holiday companies, tour operators, and airlines as they try to entice more people to the region and help boost the country's tourism sector.

Travel specialists for Kenya holidays, Kuoni, are offering travellers 30 per cent off Kenya safaris to the Masai Mara and many other destinations. Holiday specialists Hayes and Jarvis are offering spectacular deals with 15 day four-star all inclusive holidays for as little as £1,150.

Two major UK airlines, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, are also cutting their economy fares and offering a selection of return flights for £399. With the introduction of increased airport tax duties on long haul flights and the UK recovering from the effects of the recession, many tour operators and travel companies are trying to kick start the long haul market by offering travellers holidays to Kenya for £399.

Situated in the East Africa, Kenya is home to thousands of animal species, wildlife reserves and nature parks. Popular with travellers looking for adventure and sightings of the "Big 5" on Kenya safaris, the country is made up beautiful unspoilt scenery and surrounding coasts of the Indian Ocean.

In 2009 Kenya saw a significant rise in the tourism sector, with 611,000 visitors arriving to the country by air between January and August. Tourism officials are hoping that with the latest efforts and the benefits of the FIFA World Cup being hosted by neighbouring country, South Africa, visitor numbers will increase once again this year and bring much needed tourism to the region's economy and local businesses.
