Further to some positive articles about Kenya and Kenya coast we have more good news for Kenya. UK private navy will be patrolling East African waters - see this article for more details
So if you had any doubt about pirates, etc, please cast them away - you should be safe here! The last paragraph of this article is particularly encouraging for tourism sector:
"With such a large international presence in the area, the pirate threat is certainly decreasing and according to the International Maritime Bureau, pirate attacks had by October 2012 dropped to a six-year low, with only 1 ship attacked in the third quarter compared to 36 during the same period. Encouraging and positive news indeed for tourism stability in the region and a commendable initiative by Typhon."
Come to Kenya and enjoy our beautiful country!
