The Kenya Forest Service (KFA) opened the country’s gazetted forests for investors to put up five-star hotels. This is aimed at earning revenue for the state agency and boosting the country’s chances of attracting high net worth tourists. More than 200 sites have been marked as potential Eco -tourism centres throughout the country and investors will be required to put up low density Eco- tourism facilities to attract the high – spending nature loving tourists.

Activities which can be caried out in the forests include bird watching , water rafting, fishing, trekking, and mountain climbing.

The drive will also attract conservators and well wishers who will provide more resources for conservation.
