High threat of terrorism and kidnapping in areas of Kenya

Due to recent terrorist attacks in Kenya and the high threat of kidnapping and terrorism, many countries are warning citizens to avoid the area around Mpeketoni. The US Embassy in Nairobi has restricted official travel to all the coastal counties, including Kwale, Kilifi, Mombasa, Lamu and areas that are 65 kilometers inland along the Tana River. Travellers should reconsider their need to travel to Nairobi, the Mombasa region, and border areas with South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia.
