Is Kenya safe?


Tentatively thinking of booking for Mombasa in August (great deal!). However, there seem to be so many mixed reports about safety in Kenya, would be grateful of your opinions.

SallyB: There have been numerous inquiries about safety in Kenya and I think a search will provide you with what you are looking for. Having said that, I will repeat what I have written numerous times ... that at no time in Kenya during our trip in 2002 did I feel frightened by either the prospect of terrorism or by the people. Just my opinion and I am sure others will chime in as well.

The only issue I've heard people complain about in Mombassa specifically - there are many young men selling trinkets along the beach (not unlike at other beaches worldwide) that is annoying; and they seem to be a bit too pushy.

So it's just best to stay on the hotel property at the pool.

Otherwise, Kenya is a lovely destination and as safe as any other place in the world these days.
