PROF. CHESEREM .E.J. PARTICIPATED IN PROMOTING LOCAL TOURISM INDUSTRY AT MASAI MARA NATIONAL PARK, KENYA

The promotion of the local attractive destinations has been the key to the success of promoting the country’s tourism industries. However, it leads to competition among the destinations. This competition is a clear key to the long term preference of the tourists and it has been the concern of the government and the local people who depend on the destinations to spur for the economic activities. Thus, the success of a tourist destination depends on the competitiveness of the destination. Making the destination more competitive and attractive is the key concern.
