To travel in Kenya is not different than traveling in any other country, Kenya is East Africa’s country, it’s peaceful and lovely. But like everywhere in the world is necessary to be careful and follow the normal rules of attention. First is better to visit the internet site of your country dedicate at the security in the world for travelers, usually they write if one specific country have problems, notice and the suggested attentions need to have. After your country recommendations we can say this, the safari destinations are all safe, all the parks are safe and generally even the roads who connect the parks are normally safe. Areas where to be carefully and if is not necessary better don’t go, is all the area north bordering Somalia, Kenya Government is working for peace in the area especially now after the Somalia elections.
In Nairobi some places like slums and the north east suburb is better don’t go for the risk of assault by common criminals, in the rest of the city generally there aren’t problems but better don’t go alone and use taxi in your movements, is not difficult lose the correct direction and arrive in not safe zone.
In the Lake Turkana zone if you want to go do it but we recommend you to use company with big and proved experience, is too far, the road is bad and some small problems can happen along the way.
In the coast be carefully in Mombasa, some areas of the town are not very safe and are valid the same recommendations of Nairobi. Diani, Kilifi, Watamu e Malindi are safe there aren’t particular problems, Lamu is safe but is better to go in Lamu by flight don’t use the road, some places of the road from Malindi are dangerous, unfortunately Lamu is not very far from the Somalia border and this have contribute to stop the mass tourism, but if you go by flight there is no problem.
Last thing is to recommend you to appear simple traveler, don’t show money or things like gold Rolex, some tourists they paid hardly this lightness, even to go with big camera with big lens is a resistless attraction for criminals, this recommendation is valid for Nairobi Mombasa even if you pass only, and the other towns where you remain more days. Classic is the to remain without phone in the traffic jam in Nairobi, if you are with the window open and you are using the phone when your car is stopped in the traffic, your phone will change owner quickly, same thing for the handbags of ladies, being not hungry, remember is your mistake being not carefully where is a must.
We remember you is necessary to ask visa before to arrive in Kenya, visit the official site by to obtain visa for Kenya and follow instructions.
