It is the fourth time the country is receiving the accolade having bagged the award last year, 2015 and 2013.

He stated that KTB would capitalise on the global award to aggressively market the country in both traditional and emerging markets for Kenya to attract many wildlife enthusiast.

Kenya also scooped Africa’s leading beach destination award, Africa’s leading national park award and Africa’s leading tourist board award from the World Travel Awards.
