The Kenya Tourist Board (KTB) and associated national tourism bodies, (KTF and KATO) today came together with the Laikipia Wildlife Forum (LWF) and Laikipia tourism providers to form a tourism task force whose primary role is to promote Laikipia and its exceptional, diverse landscapes, wildlife and cultures.
The #KaribuLaikipia Task Force will also update the public and industry stakeholders regularly with news from the region.
The Task Force is a recommendation of an industry meeting held in Laikipia last week. They gathered to address the challenges to the tourism industry resulting from the movement of large numbers of herders and livestock into the landscape. There was general agreement that this Task Force would help inform visitors to Laikipia.
#KaribuLaikipia is led by a team comprising of ranches, conservancies, hotels, and industry leaders. Their efforts will be led by a full-time Communications Specialist to head the clearing-house functions of this Task Force. Regular updates will be posted through LWF’s social media platforms. Posts will include both the current situation and also the many positive events and stories coming out of the Laikipia tourism industry daily.
This service will be linked to other social media channels that include information on the County’s activities.
Visitors to Laikipia continue to enjoy astoundingly diverse tourism experiences throughout much of the region.
