People to People Tourism
(PPT) is a tour that aims to inculcate respect for other
peoples culture and environmental integrity within the
context of responsible tourism. PPT is a tour for anyone
at any age. It is a brand of tourism that appeals to

PPT's mission is is to creatively
nurture new ideas through product diversification in
collaboration with other stakeholders locally, regionally
and internationally in terms of opening up unique and
unutilized new tourism packages. We offer a wide range
of enriching tours. This includes visits to the country’s
heritage sites, rural villages for a breath of fresh
air, Mt. Kenya climbing and to our various world famous
wildlife and natural attractions.
In essence, we do not want
to restrict our thinking to Traditional or convectional
Tourism because that may make our customers miss tremendous
opportunities. PPT idea is regarded as a tool for greater
cross-cultural understanding and international cooperation
between peoples; love for nature and wildlife.
Most successful businesses
are those that focus their efforts on satisfying customers’
needs and convenience by keeping track of what customers
require.
