Kenya Update

January 21, 2008 By: Travel Agent Central Contributor Travel Agent

As of Monday afternoon, reports from Kenya find the country to be relatively calm, with few incidents to report-none, however, involving tourist. This comes after weeks of civil unrest that erupted in Kenya over a disputed presidential election. The main opposition party in Kenya, the ODM, has called off all street protests. As a result, the British government issued a revised travel advisory, which removed the blanket "non-essential" travel advice against visiting Kenya; so now British visitors traveling to Kenya are covered by their travel insurance.

Other countries have followed suit in lifting their travel advisories. Certain areas, however, are still considered off-limits for tourists, including the slums around Nairobi and the Kisumu-Kericho-Eldoret area of Western Kenya. The country has seen a devastating drop in tourism numbers. The Kenya Tourist Board had projected a total of 314,995 tourists would visit the country in the first quarter; the number has been scaled down to 134,450. This projection could change now that the warnings have been lifted. (MA)
