Adventure travel is one of the fastest-growing segments of the travel industry, with four out of 10 travelers embarking on some type of adventure during their vacation. For travel advisors, the potential rewards of specializing in adventure travel are substantial: according to the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA), the market is worth about $263 billion worldwide. And this, of course, includes Kenya.

Kenya is a wide-open arena for adventure travelers, with excellent walking, trekking, and climbing inland, and incredible snorkeling, diving, and boating along the coast. Walking safaris, rock climbing, running, biking, horseback riding safaris and various types of boating are also on offer in Kenya with the climate ideal for such activity.

The Adventure Experiences in Kenya elective module—one of four elective modules that have been created as add-ons to the KATS (Kenya Authorized Travel Specialist) Program in order for you to get more in-depth knowledge on that particular topic—covers experiences ideal for your adventurous clients.
