1. Re: floods

The roads are appalling !!!!!!!

The pot holes are dangerous...... and the roads ,through the heavy rainfall are badly rutted ....BUT....dont let that stop you ....There`s no problems with any of the safaris and it just takes a little bit longer to get from A-C.

If you are travelling to Malindi .......your in for a bumpy ride.....That road is a disgrace to the Kenyan government...........

road from nbi to msa is okay though a lot of potholes near msa side.

was also in malindi. that road is bad but the business people had a demonstration last week and now the road is being fixed as we speak.

safaris are okay
