Travel insurance customers planning a trip to Kenya this year have been given some advice from the government about staying safe.

A public referendum on the Constitution of Kenya is due to be held tomorrow (August 4th), meaning visitors should be careful around political rallies and public demonstrations. It is also a good idea to check local media reports for more information.

Although many of the rallies are advertised as peaceful, travellers should remember that they can turn violent: on June 13th, six people were killed and over 100 injured in explosions at Uhuru Park, Nairobi.

The government also advises taking out comprehensive medical and travel insurance before setting off to Kenya, due to the high threat from terrorism and crime in the country.

Travel to the towns bordering Somalia is also not advised, as there remains a high threat of clashes between the Kenyan military and Somali groups within 30km of the border.
