Why Use Katobookings.com

Last updated Apr 06, 2022 , 2 years ago

The Kenya Association of Tour Operators (KATO) was formed in 1978 and has grown to become one of Kenya’s leading tourism trade Associations. We represent the interests of over 300 of the most experienced tour operators in Kenya and our membership comprises both large and small operators.

One of the key objectives of KATO is to create business opportunities for members and with that in mind, we partnered with Pesapal Ltd (a leading payment solutions provider) to create a Booking Engine for Members. With is facility, KATO members are able to access business leads and send quotations directly to interested travellers. Members are also able to create their own page and post customized special offers directly to the market.

By using the Booking Portal, clients have access to: 

  1. Variety of Quotations – each request posted by a prospective visitor will received a maximum of three responses from bona fide KATO members.
  2. Quality Assurance – KATO members are bound to adhere to the highest possible standard of service delivery.
  3. Mediation/Arbitration – in the unlikely event of a disputed over services rendered, the KATO Ethics and Standards Sub-Committee will mediate the matter and give a ruling.
  4. Member Bond Scheme - protects consumers against involuntary insolvency should a Member be declared bankrupt before delivering the contracted services.

We encourage all intending travellers to Kenya to ensure that their travel arrangements are being handed by a duly licensed agent and preferably, a member of KATO. In the event one has not yet decided how to go about their intended safari to Kenya, we encourage you to try katobookings.com to receive offers from our members.
