Have just returned from Kenya ( Samburu, Mara, Galu Beach) with wife and kids.
I was very close to cancelling after the well documented security issues culminating in the Somalia action and the arrest of presumed jihadis from my home city in the days before I travelled.
It was good to be able to receive objective , informed opinion that is difficult to find in the reporting of our press (and impossible to get from our booking agent who informed me that archers post was 1050 km from the site of the abduction of the spanish doctors in Dadaab!)
Without a doubt one of the greatest holidays we have had and an experience that will live with the kids forever.
I have read the
Kenyan press at length over recent weeks and hope (rather than expect) for all involved that with increased international involvement the current situation with al shabaab can be addressed to the benefit of all Somalis and kenyans
Great country and great people.
