After USA, UK, France and several other non-African countries imposed travel bans to Kenya, following recent series of deadly attacks in Nairobi, Mombasa, Lamu, etc, by al-Shabaab Islamists, Kenya witnessed a significant drop in the numbers of tourist arrivals per year, from over a million tourists to 748 771 in 2015.

Despite the above decline in the numbers of tourists from western countries and other non-African countries, hotels in Kenya, particularly those along the coast, have been recording improving bed occupancy, emanating from increasing numbers of local visitors, and regional tourists.

It's official: South Africa is the cheapest country in the world to live

South Africa has been ranked as the cheapest country in the world to live and retire, according to a 2016 report which compares dollar strength to a number of global currencies.

GoBankingRates generated the rankings based on cost of living indices sourced from online pricing database Numbeo: Cost of Living. This study surveyed cost indicators for major cities in the 112 nations for which Numbeo had recent and accurate data, using the median cost indicators of the cities to generate a typical cost index for the country. 

When South Africa's prices and cost of living is compared to those in New York, the study found: 

Local purchasing power is 26.9% higher
Rent is 87.5% cheaper
Groceries are 71% cheaper
Local goods and services are 65.8% cheaper
