Kenya's high hotel rates driving tourists away
NAIROBI, Kenya - As Kenya's tourism sector goes through its path to recovery, tourists are still shying away from some hotel due to high accommodation prices.

This is in comparison to Kenya’s competitors in Africa, particularly South Africa, Egypt and Morocco.

According to STR Global report, a night at a Nairobi hotel costs Sh14,500, 48 percent more than Egypt. Johannesburg is the second most affordable at roughly Sh7,000.

Lagos is the most expensive at Sh20,000 while Addis Ababa has the cheapest rates of Sh2,700 a night.

The country is now in a joint marketing venture with Kenya Airways and the Kenya Tourism Board, to enhance its attractiveness.
