Visitors in 06, 07, 08, 09? Do you know?

I could not find numbers for Mara visitors over this time span. I went back to 06 to get a baseline before election problems and the world recession. Wondered how things have changed, assuming they have changed.

Thanks for any insight you may have.

Hi,

Don't know if you just mean the Mara or Kenya generally, but 2007 is regarded as the peak year for tourism, gains were made in 2009 but it is still not back to 2007 level. There have been regular articles about it in the Nation, like this one

nation.co.ke/business/…index.html

try searching with combinations of 'tourist, tourism, occupancy, numbers, etc on the Nation site
