Industry stakeholders are however appealing to the government to increase the frequency of passenger services at the SGR to enable travel of more visitors. The county also anticipates an increase in foreign tourist arrivals with the launch of the new cruise ship terminal at Kilindini harbor. The terminal will also present new opportunities for those looking to take up cruises across the region.
