& Communication Centre
The tourism industry in Kenya takes visitor safety very
seriously and considers all aspects of the tourist's
stay in Kenya. For this reason, the industry created a
Safety and Communication Center under
the auspices of the Kenya Tourism Federation (KTF),
which is operated 24hrs a day to monitor visitor safety.
The Safety Center is the brainchild of the leading
tourism trade associations comprising the Kenya
Associations of:- Tour Operators (KATO), Hotelkeepers
and Caterers (KAHC), Travel Agents (KATA), Budget hotels
(KBHA), Air Operators (KAAO) as well as Mombasa and
Coast Tourism Association (MCTA).
The Safety and Communication Center is manned by
well-trained staff who are at hand to attend to any
issues of concern to tourists. These include security,
health, road conditions, travel advisories and updates
etc. Most tourism operators are members of the Safety
and Communication Center and are regularly updated on
issues that are of importance to them.
There is a 24hr TOURIST HELPLINE (020 - 604767)
where one can seek assistance in case of need.
Many Tour Operators are also connected to the Center by
HF Radios which makes access while on safari very easy.
