FOREWORD incentives specifically designed to further build on these positive results. Kenya is truly blessed with a natural abundance of wildlife, game parks & reserves, beautiful beaches, picturesque mountain ranges and lakeside cities and thus this provides MICE tourism an even bigger boost; as meetings, conferences and events can be easily combined with pre, post or mid leisurely excursions. This in combination with an upsurge of 4-to-5 star hotels & resorts throughout Kenya, the government’s plans to roll-out numerous convention centres throughout the country in all major counties, and with efficient international airports offering daily flight connections to every major city in the world - means we have the optimal conditions for a world-class MICE destination.

Greetings from the Ministry of Tourism It is with great pride that I return to the helm of Kenya’s vibrant tourism industry as Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Tourism, at a time where Kenya’s MICE industry has been on an exponential growth curve, having hosted a number of internationally acclaimed conferences, conventions and summits in the recent past. 2015 was a great year for MICE tourism in Kenya with several notable events including; the 6th Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES 2015) which saw US President Barack Obama lead a strong delegation of the top-most entrepreneurs from all over the world, ATA’s 40th World Congress, and of course the 10th WTO Ministerial Conference all taking place in Nairobi. These global-agenda shaping meetings were a resounding and positive endorsement to the country on international levels that Kenya was and is always open for business. MICE tourism is quickly emerging as Kenya’s fastest growing frontier in the tourism industry, earning the country a prestigious second place (after South Africa) in the number of meetings, conferences & events held on the continent. It is with this keen focus that the Ministry of Tourism has strategically set-forth plans and further

The Go Places™ Annual Conference Directory together with its numerous digital & online MICE buyer marketing platforms come at an opportune time, where we need to showcase to local, regional and international markets our superb selection of city, beach and bush MICE facilities.

The favorable MICE sector in both Kenya and throughout East Africa has already been heralded as one of the most formidable business sectors in the region, and continued focus and emphasis on this specific sector has directly contributed to the growth & development of each member state, in-turn increasing the number of opportunities for further business growth, and of course positively impacting on their overall GDP.

MICE tourism remains a key & important component for Kenyan tourism, and is in-line with our continual tourism diversification strategies. One of the main reasons for this is Kenya’s strategic location, its extensive range of leisuretourism products that perfectly combine to provide MICE groups from domestic, regional & international markets a more full and gratifying experience, and of course our impressive and non-stop infrastructural development.

KTB therefore endorses The Go Places™ Conference Directory’s print and digital platforms, as well as its several inter-linked domestic, regional & international MICE buyer based platforms pegged to this awardwinning product.

KENYA > NAIROBI CITY KENYA MAJOR>TOWNS

KENYA MAJOR TOWNS Apart from the cities of Nairobi and Mombasa, Kenya has other major towns and counties, each of which is a unique representation of the country’s different cultures and communities. From the beautiful lakesides of Kisumu and Naivasha, to the upcoming towns of Nyeri & Machakos, to even Muranga, Eldoret and Lukenya – Kenya has a lot more to offer than just city, beach & bush destinations. Accommodation & conference facilities vary to suit different tastes, budgetary and meeting-conference-event venue requirements, with everything from luxurious 5 star, 4 star and 3 star establishments. visit: www.goplacesbooking.com

KISUMU

Kisumu, the third largest city in Kenya, is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Set on the shores of Lake Victoria, Kisumu has a humid climate with a well-developed road transport system connecting the city to other major towns in Western Kenya. The tourism industry in Kisumu revolves around Lake Victoria where meeting-conference-event venue groups can enjoy premium amenities, matched by lakeside activities and tour interesting sites such as Hippo point, the Kisumu Impala Sanctuary, Kisumu Museum and Kit Mikaye. This part of Kenya boasts a rich cultural heritage, with most of them carrying fascinating stories that portray the past lives, times and beliefs of the people living in this region. It can also be noted that Kogelo village, US President Barrack Obama’s ancestral home is also in Kisumu and a worthwhile visit. Kisumu offers contemporary accommodation options, great meeting/conference/event venues and deliciously-inspired cuisine restaurants. Go Places™ highly-recommends the newly developed Acacia Premier Kisumu, Imperial Hotel or the VIC Hotel.

NAKURU

Nakuru is Kenya’s 4th largest city, only slightly smaller than Kisumu. It is an important agricultural city, trade center and transportation hub. Visitors to this county can catch glimpse of the Menengai Crater or Lake Nakuru National Park, where your chances of seeing a rhino are better than any other park in Kenya. A relatively small park yet has a large variety of animals, Lake Nakuru National Park and located only 10km from city centre and is famous for its pink-rimmed lake that has a vast number of flamingos that can be seen foraging in the shallow lake.

ELDORET

Lying south of the Cherangani Hills, Eldoret is Kenya’s fifth largest town. Its name was derived from “eldare”, a Maasai word meaning “stony river”.

The old town offers guests a charming labyrinth of narrow twisting allies which display beautifully carved doors and Arab verandas, bazaars with curios and antique shops. The coastal city of Mombasa is one of Africa’s major touristic destinations, with some of the best beachfronts in the world. With many superb hotels & resorts offering state-of-the-art amenities in the coastal town and along the white-sandy beachfronts of the Indian Ocean; Mombasa makes for an ideal getaway experience to host engaging meetings, conferences & events. The island consists of three main areas the North Coast, the South Coast & Mombasa Mainland.

TRAVEL INFO Population Over 850,000 Languages English, Swahili By Plane 45 minutes flight from or to Nairobi By Car 7-8hrs (North Coast) or 8-9hrs (South Coast) drive from Nairobi

GEOGRAPHY

Being a coastal town, Mombasa is characterised by a flat topography and centred on the Mombasa Island, but extends well into inland. The island is separated from the mainland by two creeks namely; Tudor Creek & Kilindini Harbour, and connected to the north by the Nyali Bridge, to the south by the Likoni Ferry, and to the west by the Makupa Causeway. On the North Coast are the Nyali, Bamburi & Shanzu beaches, and on the South Coast you will find Shelly, Tiwi and the worldfamous Diani beach.

TOURISM

Both the North and South Coast of Mombasa offer an extensive array of luxury hotels & beach resorts, with options to suit every budget and specific requirement. Mombasa is world-renowned for its exciting water sports activities, white sandy beaches, touristic attractions including Fort Jesus & Mombasa’s Old Town, thrilling nightlife and an abundance of culinary offerings.

CLIMATE Being at the Coastline, Mombasa’s average temperature is 3 - 5 degrees centigrade higher than the capital city of Nairobi. Mombasa has a tropical dry & wet climate, and the amount of rainfall essentially depends on the season. The rainiest months are April and May, while rainfall is minimal in January and February.

TRANSPORT

Mombasa is served by Moi International Airport where both local and international airlines fly daily. The Kenya Railways runs overnight passenger trains from Mombasa to Nairobi.

Like any other town in Kenya, minibuses (matatus) are the most common means of transport within the town and its suburbs.

SECURITY

The Central Police Station is located at the heart of the town, and regular patrols are carried out on foot as well as in vehicles all over the City. Kenya Wildlife Service agents maintain a safe and clean environment along the beaches, and ensure that the law is enforced with around the clock surveillance.

LAMU

Going to the remote archipelago of Lamu is like traveling back in time. As Kenya’s oldest town, Lamu has retained its appearance and character over the centuries. The town has narrow streets, no cars and the only means of transport are donkeys, or by sea and motor powered boats. The Lamu area contains some of the world’s most abundant sealife and untouched beachfronts. The beauty of this ancient coastal town is celebrated by the natives but every year during the annual Lamu Festival where all are welcome to experience the marvel of this coastal gem.

Malindi is a place full of history dating back to the 15th Century when the Portuguese visited our shores, choosing this as a prime trading post. The small town is at the centre of a strip of idyllic tropical beaches offering visitors a range of world class resorts and quiet relaxing hideaways. The Vasco Da Gama Pillar in Malindi stands just south of

the town at the Vasco Da Gama Point. The pillar marks the last stop in Africa before Vasco Da Gama sailed across the Indian Ocean to India in 1498.

WATAMU

Set south of Malindi is the quieter village of Watamu fronted by wide white powdered beaches; a tranquil haven and home to several well established resorts, and many private guesthouses scattered through the forest and along the exclusive and more isolated shorelines.

A new concept, bush conferencing, has become a preferred favorite amongst many corporate and social groups, taking advantage of the tranquil and serene environment of the wild, allowing for more focused, receptive and engaging forums away from the hustle & bustle of the busy cities. Some of the facilities are set under canvas whilst others have more permanent and purposefully built structures yet still offer all the thrills game parks & reserves are renowned for.
