Will US anti-travel advisory put a damper on ASTA World Congress?


During the just-ended year of 2016, American tourists outpaced all other nationalities to claim top spot in tourist arrivals, and with most of them coming to the country for the traditional safari holiday, their spending has contributed to boost the Kenyan economy.
