Good morning everyone,
Today, I had a friend ask me if he felt it was safe to travel to Mombasa given the recent attacks and bombings that have affected Kenya. I thought it would make a good blog post for anyone else who was concerned about travelling to the country.
Currently the United Kingdom FCO (Foreign and Consulate Office) has advised against all but essential travel to certain areas of Kenya. Here’s a map for you to see the affected regions:
The US Embassy has also issued a warning to its citizens warning of the possibility of terrorist attacks within Kenya. The message is quite clear:
- Strongly consider any travel to Kenya.
- If you do go to Kenya, be extremely careful.
