On March 8 2018, Designer Tours and Travel was awarded the Travelife Partner Certificate Award at the ITB Berlin, the world’s leading travel trade show. Designer Tours and Travel was among 40 other tour operators around the Globe to be awarded, who were recognized for their active commitment towards sustainability by complying to more than 100 Travelife certification criteria.

Designer Tours is a beneficiary of the Kenya Tour Operators Sustainability Partnership Program between Ecotourism Kenya, Kenya Association of Tour Operators (KATO) and Travelife launched in 2015, which was aimed at preparing tour operator companies for sustainability recognition through the Travelife Certification and most importantly, to increase their competitiveness in the global markets. To date, 11 Tour operator companies have so far achieved the Travelife Partner Status. Since this certification is a first of its kind in Kenya and East Africa, these companies are therefore pioneers in promoting sustainability in tour operator businesses. The companies include;

1.     Kisima Tours and Travel
