“Avoid congested areas and be careful walking around in the evening,” Meyer advised. “Be vigilant of your valuables. We recommend that the crew ask the handler for advice on what areas to avoid. Very good English is spoken.”
Kenya has historically been one of the more stable democracies in Africa, except it seems, during election periods. These can often result in violent demonstrations or outright riots, as was seen most recently in the 2008 presidential election (which wound up in a bizarre shared leadership in which both candidates serve in office simultaneously in order to quell public dissatisfaction). National elections were scheduled to cycle around again this March.
Nevertheless, with proper precautions, Kenya and Nairobi offer unforgettably positive experiences. The plateau scenery is spectacular, with national parks and other protected areas to choose from for excursions or safaris. After all, this is Africa's beating heart. Now, open your eyes and get started with your flight planning. BCA
