You now hold the key to Kenya’s countless safari opportunities, ranging from traditional safaris in the wild and visits to coastal paradises, to cultural tours and mountaineering.

This website is designed to provide you with a one-stop shop for all your safari needs, ranging from information about Kenya’s tourism product to details of tour operators who can cater for your needs.

The Kenya Association of Tour Operators (KATO) is one of the key tourism trade associations in Kenya, representing the interests of over 400 of the most experienced professional tour operators in Kenya. Our members are bound by the Code of Conduct to provide the highest possible quality of service to their clients.

There are a wide range of services that KATO members offer and these can be broadly divided into the following categories:

  • Air safaris
  • Incentive travel group safaris
  • Custom safaris for individual travellers
  • Camping safaris (luxury & budget)
  • Indian Ocean & Coast holidays
  • Cultural & Community Safaris
  • Golf Safaris
  • Agro Safaris
  • Special interest safaris (e.g. mountaineering, deep sea fishing, horse riding)


We wish to alert intending visitors to Kenya of the existence of some unscrupulous tour companies which attempt to deceive potential visitors that they are KATO members, while in fact they are not. Any company that is not listed in this website is NOT a KATO member.

We would be grateful if you could report to us (info@katokenya.org) all such offenders so that appropriate action can be taken against them.

About Kenya
