Turkana County’s overall security has remained relatively moderate with some safety and security issues, demanding advised movement in several parts of the county. Kapedo (in the East) and Kibish (in the North) are high risk areas thus calling for proper briefing to all visitors intending to visit any of these destinations.

Visiting Lodwar also requires formal briefing, but it is a low crime town. However, visitors advised to refrain from walking late night alone and to always be vigilant regarding your personal security and preparedness.
