Is Kenya really Safe? This is one of the most frequently asked questions and the answer is yes. Kenya has been the first country that has been awarded the recommended status of “Safer Tourism Seal” and is generally considered safe for travel. However, there are regions that are not as safe as others and most of these areas lie on the border with Somalia and are non-touristic hence no planned tours to these destinations.
Group and escorted travel during your stay in Kenya is highly recommended as it is safer as compared to solo travel.The people of Kenya are very hospitable and are always ready and willing to help whenever and wherever they can. The Ministry of Tourism also has indicated that it is taking proactive measures to assure visitors of the safest tourism experience possible.
