Not just the terrorists you have to worry, there's also gangs and muggers who are willing to get a piece out of the unlucky victims, so always assume that you're an easy target for both terrorists and criminals alike.

During my trip in Nairobi, I got the chance to visit the city at night with a local guide.I think it's the best option since the natives know which areas are safer to walk around. Find out more about how you can book a local guide here:
