The Western Kenya initiative was formed in late 2018 to bring hospitality and tourism stakeholders and actors together for a joint and coordinated push of the Western Kenya region as the destination of choice and to visit in Kenya. This then gave birth to a first of sorts – bringing to the region a first-ever locally organized tour operators in the country to visit Western Kenya, experience it and to discover the numerous attractions within its boundaries. The Familiarization Trip was held in the first week of April 2019 and had the operators’ visit and experience attraction in seven counties in the region.
