Valentine’s Day a big business in East Africa Tourism


Hotels, resorts, safari lodges, restaurants and now airlines too are trying to cash in on Valentine’s Day celebrations this year, more so as the big day falls on a Friday, making it a perfect mini getaway weekend for lovers. Kenya Airways has now joined the throng with their heart shaped campaign, inviting those keen to get away with their loved one to consider spending a few days in Mombasa, Malindi, Zanzibar, the Seychelles, Bangkok and yes, even Uganda, where ‘lovers’ retreats’ are being organized by among others GeoLodges Uganda.

Kenya Airways’ is in fact offering rebated ‘romantic packages’ through KQ Holidays to bring these destinations within reach of Kenyans, Ugandans, Rwandans, Burundians and Tanzanians. International airlines have notably not yet splashed out any special deals tailored for a weekend getaway, seemingly leaving this occasion to the local businesses in the aviation and travel industry.
