On occasions I do publish or rather re-publish articles I come across or written by individuals I know or have met. Claudia was very involved in the recent Hotel Summit East Africa and when I learned that she was periodically writing about tourism in Kenya, I promised to choose one of her stories and share it … and no better day than World Tourism Day.

Cruzeiro Safaris Kenya Redefines African Tourism and Safaris in Kenya
|Tourism in Africa is sometimes misunderstood to be just the wildlife; some people even think they are coming into a bush. African tourism is on the rise with lavish and luxurious destinations offered with added value in Customer service.
Online PR News – 19-September-2013 –
It was all adventure, pomp and color at the Maralal Camel Derby 2013 where winners earned cash prizes. Cruzeiro Safaris group, a top rated tour operator company in Kenya, emerged the best winner scooping position 2, 3, 4, 5, 11, and 12.
Cruzeiro Safaris ventures into sports tourism in Kenya. An adventure taken is worthwhile it’s the only experience one can have at that particular time. All positions at the Camel derby 2013 were taken by British nationals showing their interest in getting out of the norm to venture into the unknown. All were in the amateurs’ category and positions 2 and 3 took cash prizes home.
There are many upcoming sports based events around the country. This has raised due to the constitutional boundary changes where instead of centralized governance they have move to devolved governance. Every county government wants to shine and thus will embark on efforts to bring visitors and investors into their county. Kenya is known for its wide range of sports including racing, athletics, golf, rallying, javelin, swimming, lawn tennis, table tennis, football, volley ball and net ball. The fact that there is peace and stability in Kenya more and more opportunities will arise for tour operators to come up with exciting packages for locals and tourist. This will increase revenues and growth to an economy that is fast growing.
Currently, some of the safari packages created by Cruzeiro safaris have combined an activity with safari. Some examples are the much awaited solar eclipse 30Oct -07 Nov, 2013 and the Kenya Airways Sponsored Maasai Mara Marathon 04Oct – 06Oct, 2013 all taking place in October and of course one could still plan for the Maralal Camel Derby 2014. If one is willing to take the cash prize then you need to take action and take the challenge! – Since some camels will have made a 6day trip from Turkana to Samburu, It’s also possible to take a 6 day trip on Camel Safari back to Turkana after the Derby. Other luxury safari that are on the rise include the Serena hotels and lodges circuit for 17 days adventure in the bush and Fairmont Mara Safari Club for those with a short time in Kenya which is also easy to book even for a single traveler.
Mr. Munga the Director says, “Sports tourism is fun but combining it with a safari package gives more value in time and money, so we encourage our customers not only to think of Mombasa and Maasai Mara but be ready to know their country better!”
