NOREB in talks with Canada’s Yukon Territory on Tourism development

The North Rift Tourism Circuit and it’s Geo-destinations is set to get a major boost following the recognition of its great Adventure and Sports Tourism potential by North America’s premier outdoor loving Communities.

Over the last few years the NOREB’s Tourism Development and Wildlife Coordinator Warden William Kimosop has worked very closely with Run for Life, a wide range of stakeholders and local Communities in building experiences, discovering unique sites in order to promote sustainable Geo-tourism.

To further enhance this collaboration and explore new frontiers Warden Kimosop late June went on a 2 weeks Training, Certification and exposure process at the invitation and support of Run for Life Board and the Northern Territories Council, Yukon Canada.

Kimosop’s training also included adventure logistics planning, trail designs, building and rescue operations management with the world’s leader in the outdoor travel profession.

The trip was an exploratory mission in sharing the North Rift and Kenya situation with the ultimate aim of interesting more visitors from the subcontinent to the North Rift Counties in particular.

This is part of a deliberate attempt by NOREB Counties to shift and diversify the Tourism products from the traditionally known arena. It is also part of the strategy in attaining the Aspiring UNESCO Global Geopark Network status for the Great Rift Valley landscape.
