Kenya is known for its diverse wildlife, natural landscapes, and rich cultural heritage. The country is a perfect hub for both local and international tourism.
Data from the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife indicate that in the six months ending June 2023, domestic tourism recorded a 16 per cent jump closing at 2.3 million, compared to 2.02 million in the same period in 2022.
The high demand for local tours especially during holiday seasons not only translates to increased revenue for the tourism sector but also avails business opportunities for tour operators.
Paul Mwendwa is a seasoned tour and travel professional who has forged a successful career in the travel industry. He is the overseer of Kenya Expresso Tours and Safaris (Ketsafaris), one of the most popular tour companies in Kenya.
The firm offers a wide range of services including Safaris and holiday packages, that spell luxury, and relaxation at affordable rates to customers from all walks of life.

This is to ensure that you enjoy every single cent of your payment and provide nothing than the best,’’ the firm states.
Mr Mwendwa notes that Ketsafaris does not offer Kenyan trips only but allows its customers to explore the entire African region.
Some of its key destinations are the Mara, the Aberdare ranges, Lake Nakuru National Park, Amboseli National Park, Tsavo National Park, Mombasa Beach Hotels, and Tanzania Serengeti.
Others are Ngoro Ngoro, Uganda Bwindi, Rwanda Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park, Victoria Falls Zimbabwe, and South Africa.
”Our goal is to ensure that our clients have a great and memorable time in Africa since that’s what holiday is all about… we have a great collection of itineraries suitable for families, honeymooners, private groups, singles or couples.’’ adds the firm.
With a physical office along Mombasa Road, Mwendwa notes that he has a team of tour experts who help tourists choose packages that fit their budget and interests.
Ketsafaris plans to expand and open offices in other countries in the next five years. Further, the business plans to diversify its investment in the tourism industry by investing in the hotel business.
Mr Mwendwa is Born Again and a firm believer in Christ Jesus. He emphasises the importance of humility, listening, forgiveness, and patience to succeed in business and life. He advises aspiring entrepreneurs to honour God and believe their ideas can become a reality.
