Kenya FCO Advice

Security update | Should you travel to Kenya?

The safety of our clients is always of primary importance, and as such we always respect the travel advice from The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Following the issues in Nairobi on Friday the 16th May the FCO has issued travel advice for Mombasa, Kenya advising against all but essential travel to Mombasa island and within 5km of the coast from Mtwapa creek in the north to Tiwi in the south.

Clients travelling to Kenya should be reassured that our safaris use local airstrips outside of the FCO travel warning areas in order to fly directly to Nairobi or Mombassa Airport, avoiding transfers through the areas falling within the FCO warning.

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi and all safari circuits throughout Kenya continue to operate as normal and Kenya Airways, British Airways and other scheduled carriers continue to operate their usual flight schedules into Kenya.

Kenya remains one of the most popular destinations in Africa for safaris with excellent opportunities to combine game and beach. Our family safari with guiding from Jackson Looseyia in the Greater Mara with three nights at Richard’s River Camp and five nights mobile with Jackson Looseyia from £5,250 was recently featured in the Financial Times How to Spend It Magazine in their article, Kenya’s wildlife conservancies.
