Ecotourism Kenya has a matchmaking and mentorship initiative, through which Community Based Tourism Enterprises (CBTEs) and the players in the mainstream tourism industry can engage in meaningful sustainable business arrangements. Through this project, the private sector has an opportunity to identify potential CBTEs that complement their businesses such as unique tourism products or activities and local sourcing of raw materials. Ecotourism Kenya on the other hand provides the necessary capacity support to raise the CBTE products and business practices and nurtures the link to the private sector.

You can become a part of this Matchmaking venture by

  • Including a CBTE in your itinerary
  • Source for products made by CBTEs
  • Source of other services from CBTEs
  • For a list of CBTEs on our data base, click here
