    Sankara Nairobi received accreditation from SafeHotels for its excellence in safety and crisis management. Sankara Nairobi is the first Hotel in Africa to receive the accolade.Speaking during the award ceremony, Hans Kanold, CEO of SafeHotels said, “The hotel is the first ever to attain the 200 point audit and be awarded with the SafeHotels certificate and trust symbol.

    Receiving the award, the General Manager of Sankara Nairobi, Mr. Moshi Perera noted that this was a huge milestone for the hotel, as “we are committed to exceeding customers’ expectation in every respect”.

    Sankara Nairobi is also Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP (DS – 3027: 2002 (E)) Certified. It was the first hotel in Sub-Saharan Africa to achieve the certification in 2011.

    HACCP is recongised as one of the most rigourous and comprehensive preventative food safety management systems in the world.

    In attendance at the award ceremony, SafeHotels Global Operations Director, Andy Williams asserted, “safety is a major concern especially for hotels and should be taken seriously. Our company was created due to the fact that safety is one of the main concerns within the international hotel and meeting industry today.”

    Often times, a lack of measures is taken to meet the growing safety and security concerns. Safehotels’ solution is to provide objective third party evaluation of business hotel and conference venues’ security standard world wide – covering all important aspects of hotel and conference security.
