Kenya is the third most preferred travel destination by the High Net-Worth Individuals (NHWI) in Africa in 2016 according to a latest research.
Kenya hosted 4,000 multi-millionaires last year while Morocco accommodated 5,000 and South Africa 15,000. Botswana tied with Kenya in the third position according to Afrasia New World Wealth report.
Nairobi and Masaai Mara of course remained the most preferred spots for the super-rich who, according to the report, are individuals worth more than KSh1 billion ($10 million).
Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp in Maasai Mara was the most popular safari lodge for the HNWI visiting Kenya and fifth in Africa.
“Wildlife safaris were the most popular pastime for African HNWIs in 2016. Notably, over the past few years cycling and car collecting have become more popular, whilst golf, tennis and horses have become less popular among African HNWIs,” read the report.
