  • What This Chapter Shows: To demonstrate that Kenya’s tourism economy depends on a foundation of healthy ecosystems, this chapter highlights key ecosystem components and their uses. The first section presents ecosystem assets important for nature-based tourism: maps show the system of protected areas, areas rich in birdlife and bird biodiversity, the locations where wildlife with high ‘viewing value’ concentrate, and a more detailed view of ecosystem assets along the Indian Ocean coast. The second section looks at the patterns of use of these ecosystem assets. A brief overview of tourism infrastructure is followed by a series of graphs summarizing recent trends in numbers, revenue, and distribution of visitors among the main tourist attractions. The chapter concludes with a more detailed examination of visitor and revenue patterns for Kenya’s protected areas.
