December 2013 . Safe to travel ?? Safari Advise also...

Hi Guys,

Am considering returning to Mombassa for a holiday in December 2013.

After the last holiday having to be cancelled in January 2008 due to the riots am a little concerned as to our timings......

Can anyone advise?

We did eventually visit in July 2008,and we were thinking of returning

Dec 2013 is a long way off to predict anything when planning a holiday to Africa. Anything can happen.

Remember, Elections are scheduled for Mar 2013.

Compared to other African countries, Kenya is still considered to be politically stable.

Elections are scheduled for March 2013 unless the cases currently before the courts change the date, but those cases are seeking to bring them forward rather than delay them

Thinking of visiting February, is there a history of problems at election time?

We are definitely visiting for 3 weeks from mid December 2013 until 11 Jan 2014, come hell or high water. It'll be safer at Diani than in Cardiff after England beat Wales at rugby! ;-)
