Vincent Nyamari Maranga*

Despite tourism’s significant growth over the last five years, the sector continues to face a number of challenges which need to be addressed in order for the sector to attain its full potential and thus contribute effectively to the country’s development goals as envisaged in Vision 2030. Consequently, the hotel industry in Kenya continues to deal with the negative effects of travel advisories (WTTC, 2011). These advisories have heightened safety and security issues in the minds of both international and local travelers globally.
