PROFILE
Kenya Tourism Federation Safety & Communication Centre is the pioneer tourist safety management and control centre and we have the pleasure of introducing our organisation to you.

BACKGROUND
The Tourism Industry in Kenya has traditionally had seven active private sector bodies representing the associations of Tour Operators, Hotelkeepers and Caterers, Travel Agents, Air Operators, Mombasa & Coast Tourism and Ecotourism Kenya. Whereas each association worked very hard on their own, the ability to effectively address the entire industry's concerns was limited, as the priority needs of one association's membership are quite different from those of another. This situation led to the birth of the Kenya Tourism Federation (KTF), with the primary objective of uniting the seven associations under one umbrella. The key objectives of KTF are to: -

  • Provide a single voice for the tourism industry;
  • Enhance ethics and standards in the tourism industry;
  • Strengthen private sector representation on the various organisations/boards that impact on tourism;
  • Provide a forum through which the industry can give input to the marketing activities of the Kenya Tourism Board;
  • Lobby and constructively engage Government on issues critical to the industry.
KTF VISION

To be the authoritative voice for Kenya's tourism industry private sector

KTF MISSION

OBJECTIVES
  1. Institutional Capacity: To continually strengthen KTF's institutional capacity to execute its mandate and stated objectives

  3. Industry Communication: To provide accurate and reliable and timely information on matters affecting the industry to enable industry stakeholders manage their operations and avert avoidable risks
  4. Regulation: To develop a code of conduct and standards in order to promote self regulation and industry best practice
  5. Environment, Natural Resources and Heritage: To promote the responsible use and development of our natural resources and heritage for sustainable tourism and posterity.
  6. Industry Development: To identify research and develop innovative industry initiatives so as to improve service delivery and grow the industry.
