Kenya's tourism industry, like many others, was in a fix when Covid-19 struck. Kenya's beach resorts typically saw 80% of bookings from outside of Kenya and 90% of such bookings were short-term.

With international travel closed down, you would think the resorts would probably be out of business. On the contrary, Kenya's locals started booking long-term stays to escape from crowded cities & work remotely from the beaches!

Speaking of the numbers, 90% of bookings now are long-term stays & more than half of guests are Kenya's locals.

    Great share, Hrishikesh. Particularly like this move by Kenya's locals. Remote workers get to work from a new surrounding. All the while, stimulating the tourism industry and providing support to small businesses that are solely reliant on tourism.Β
