Kenya's Best Year Yet

The numbers are in for Kenya's 2010 tourism performance: compared with 2009, tourist arrivals for 2010 are up a staggering 15.1 percent. Last year brought in 1,095,842 international visitors to Kenya.

The majority of these numbers came from the UK, but the second largest contributor was the United States, followed by Italy, Germany and France.

Looking to 2011, Kenya hopes to keep numbers just as high, and has even gone so far as to lower the cost of visas to visit the country.
