The African country saw more than 2 million tourists visit in 2018 – an annual increase of 31.6 percent and over half a million more people than the previous year, including Brazilian nationals – thanks to innovative marketing campaigns and the allure of its numerous natural wonders.

This is thanks to the country's many incredible sights and experiences. From six UNESCO World Heritage Sites to a number of Marine Parks on the Kenyan Coast, the African country has something for everyone.
