Are safaris in Kenya safe?
The continent of Africa is larger than all of Europe, China, India, Argentina, New Zealand and the United States put together. It consists of fifty-four countries with totally unrelated political systems over 11,700,000 square miles. What happens in one country, even a bordering country does not necessarily affect the other. Think of it this way ??? if something happened in Canada, would that affect your travel plans to Florida or Mexico? There are certain inherent risks whenever one travels, but the chances of being involved in an incident are very small. It is just not wise for Private Safaris to send you to an area where we know there are problems. We are in constant contact with our government security agencies and Kenya Wildlife Services and continually monitor any situations that might occur or arise and advise our travel agents and clients accordingly. Many of our vehicles are equipped with emergency long-range radios. We have the ability to change your itinerary at the last minute and would certainly cancel a trip if you would be in harms??? way. If you have any questions at any time regarding destinations, do not hesitate to call. Your safety and comfort in travelling to an area is our foremost concern. Roads in wildlife areas are bumpy and dusty. Many of our trips feature comfortable flights; this does add to the cost of the safari, but it converts wasted time on the road to quality time viewing the wildlife. In East Africa, internal flights are included in the land price.
