Kenyan hotels are set to benefit from a wider audience following a joint partnership between Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) and Africa’s leading online hotel booking website: Jovago.com.
The partnership will now see all the accommodation facilities get online booking by both local and international clients with the integrated booking between KTB’s destination website, Magical Kenya and Jovago.
KTB Managing Director Muriithi Ndegwa said the partnership will offer a platform for hoteliers to receive booking from different clients owing to the world wide visibility.
“This online booking will guarantee a good visibility of different brands and to clients with varied preference and choice,” says Ndegwa.
The joint partnership which will be unveiled on 26th this month will go a long way in enhancement of online campaigns aimed at improving Kenya’s brand equity.
Commenting on the same, Estelle Verdier, Managing Director of Jovago.com expressed her view on the intergration thus “We are delighted about this partnership which will definitely support the growth of the tourism industry by making it easier and cheaper to travel to Kenya.
