Picture this: An American couple on its first trip to Africa is mesmerized by the exotic beauty of the undulating bluffs of the Great Rift Valley and marvels at one of the world’s largest wildlife movements in the Maasai Mara park reserve.
And after a day out, the couple retreats to its bush lodge in the middle of the Maasai Mara wilderness to rejuvenate at the lodge’s spa and wellness center. It sure does feel good to be in Kenya.
While nothing is wrong with the setting, it is quite deceiving. Though many tourists visiting Kenya—and those from Britain andthe United States in particular—are requesting spa services, especially after the long haul flights into the country, the high demand for health and beauty services among the young Kenyan population can hardly go unnoticed, as well.
