Background: Prince Amyn Aga Khan -- brother of the Aga Khan -- on Saturday (July 3) attended the official unveiling of the foundation stone at a proposed new tourist game reserve in the Masai Mara district of Kenya. The reserve and its 50-bed lodge are part of a GBP2,000,000 game lodge and hotel project initiated by a group known as Tourism Promotion Services Limited. Earlier, the Prince had launched a similar programme in Uganda. The Tourism Promotion Services group brings together a powerful company of local East African and international investors.
The Kenyan side of the scheme involves two game lodges -- each with 50 rooms -- an hotel in Nairobi with 100 rooms and a beach hotel at Shanzu, north of Mombasa.
The Mara Game Reserve scheme was opened officially by the Kenyan Minister for Tourism, Mr J.L. Shako.
