肯尼亚自然保护区借助中国建造的铁路复兴旅游业

NAIROBI, Feb. 24 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's Taita Taveta Wildlife Conservancies Association (TTWCA) plans to leverage on the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR), which runs from Mombasa to the capital Nairobi, to boost its revenues from tourism post-COVID-19 pandemic, an official said on Wednesday.

新华社内罗毕224日电-肯尼亚塔塔·塔维塔野生动物保护协会(TTWCA)的一位官员在周三表示,该国计划借助从蒙巴萨到首都内罗毕的标准轨距铁路(SGR)来刺激后新冠疫情期间的旅游业的增长。

Donald Mcharo, chairman of TTWCA told Xinhua that the conservancies which are located along the SGR, currently depend on livestock rearing and carbon trading as their main source of income as the tourism sector has been negatively affected by the pandemic.

TTWCA主席唐纳德·麦加罗(Donald Mcharo)告诉新华社,由于旅游业受到新冠疫情的不利影响,位于SGR沿线的自然保护区目前主要依靠畜牧业和碳交易为主要收入来源。

"We are planning to introduce tourism activities such as games drives, lodges and game ranching for both local and international tourists by leveraging our close proximity to the SGR to enable visitors to access our facilities," Mcharo said.

麦加罗称:“我们计划利用我们与SGR铁路近距离接触的优势,为本地和国际游客引入一系列旅游活动,如驾驶游戏,小屋搭建和牧场游戏等。”

The TTWCA consists of more than 28 ranches covering an estimated 900,000 acres in southwest Kenya that promote environmental conservation.

TTWCA28多个用于促进环保的牧场组成,覆盖肯尼亚西南部约90万英亩的土地。

Mcharo said that the goal is to expand tourism activities to account for 50 percent of all revenues in the next five years by taking advantage of the SGR.

麦加罗称,该计划目标是利用SGR扩大旅游活动,使其在未来五年内占该地区所有收入的50%。

"The SGR will be a big part of our drive to boost our revenues from tourists because it provides an affordable and convenient mode of transport to ferry visitors into our parks," he added.

麦加罗补充说到:“ SGR将成为我们增加游客收入的主要动力,因为它提供了一种便宜而便捷的交通方式,将游客带入我们的公园。”
