    KATO’s Objectives:

    • To uphold the good reputation of Kenya as a tourist destination by ensuring that Kenya Tour Operators maintain the highest standards of service and value.
    • To give agents and individual clients alike the confidence of knowing that Kenya has mechanisms designed to consider the possible redress of any wrongs which a client may have suffered.
    • To recommend certain standards which the government might consider in determining whether or not to grant or renew the license of an operator.
    • To provide means for the Association’s members to seek protection or redress in any dispute either with another member or a non-member of the association.
    • To endeavour to instil a spirit of unity and loyalty to each other amongst members of the association.

    Whatever your Safari needs, you can be sure that you are in good hands when dealing with a KATO member.

    CAUTION: 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.
