Kenya Travel Advice - July 2014 Update

14/07/2014

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) has issued an update to its travel advice for British tourists travelling to Kenya. Britons are now advised to avoid all but essential travel to Kenya's popular tourist destination of Lamu and Tana River.

Travel warnings were issued after a series of attacks over the past few weeks left more than 80 people dead. Al-Qaeda-linked militants al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attacks, saying they were carried out as revenge against Kenya's military operations in Somalia. These warnings for areas around the Kenya-Somalia border and parts of the capital, Nairobi, also remain in place.

Travel Advice to Kenya Update

So far, none of the hotels and houses catering to western tourists on the Lamu archipelago have been targeted but the updated advisory stresses "a high threat of terrorism". The update was issued after gunmen attacked a village in Lamu County, torching houses and stealing weapons, food and medical supplies.

The FCO advice reads: "If you are currently in an area to which we now advise against all but essential travel, you should consider whether you have an essential reason to remain. If not, you should leave the area."

The advice does not include or affect transit through Nairobi airport.

The FCO said travel advice to the country was being kept under "constant review".

We have a FAQ here that allows you to immediately see the current travel advice for every country in the world.
