Tourist Attraction

The Tourism Sector involves economic activity related to providing goods and services to tourists. Tourists are people “who travel to, or stay at, a place outside his/her usual environment for a period of time”.

Kitui County has also been designated as a Wildlife Activity Zone by Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) which allows for fly camping, camel and horseback safaris and still offers traditional game viewing. The County hosts popular 745Km2 Mwingi National Reserve which is a home to hundreds of buffalo, hyena, warthog and hippopotamus, 13,747 square kilometers Tsavo East National Park and Kora National Park which is a lion sanctuary. These tourist attractions also offer a thriving market for local artefacts such as baskets and soapstone/woodcarvings - another major source of revenue to the people of Kitui.

Kitui’s size and massive natural, geographic, cultural and artistic diversity offers enormous opportunities for the travel and tourism industry. The industry would also benefit from introduction of new forms of tourism and development of niche segments. Opportunities also exist in ecotourism, adventure tourism, and cruise tourism. Eco-tourism is increasing in popularity, evident in the development of eco-friendly hotels and tour packages. These tourist attractions also offer a thriving market for local artefacts such as baskets and soapstone/woodcarvings.

Within tourism sector, transportation-related services and accommodation and food services account for the largest shares of GDP followed by accommodation and food services. Other sectors like retail activities, take the remaining share comprised of various other industries, such as travel agents, vehicle rentals, vacation rentals, and performing arts.
