Wildlife Safari Managing Director Trevor Fernande

first_imgWildlife Safari Managing Director, Trevor Fernandes, has released the following statement:“A group of heavily armed terrorists launched an attack on the DusitD2, a luxury boutique hotel and office complex in Westlands, an upscale suburb of Nairobi, Kenya on Tuesday afternoon [15 January 2019]. Elite security forces and local police engaged with the terrorists and together with emergency medical services, managed to evacuate over seven hundred people from the complex. The entire complex was cleared in less than 24 hours and, in the words of Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta. “…all the terrorists are eliminated.” Sadly, a total of 21 people were killed, including an American and a Briton, with around 30 people injured and receiving treatment at various hospitals.Al Shabab, the Somali based terrorist group affiliated with Al Qaeda, claimed responsibility as retaliation for Kenya’s long standing military support in the war against terrorist groups operating from Somalia, in support of US, UK and European forces.Wildlife Safari’s head office and operations centre in Nairobi, is constantly monitoring the situation. This office is open every day of the year and we are in regular contact with all our guests throughout the region, and every WS safari vehicle is fitted with UHF/VHF radio and cellular telephone with good cellular coverage available throughout the country.Wildlife Safari guests spend minimal time in Nairobi and our guests stay at selected Nairobi hotels with excellent security in place, including boom gates with metal detectors, all guests and luggage are screened on arrival. There are two excellent hotels inside the airport precinct, after the first security checkpoint, and all departing passengers pass through three separate security points prior to boarding their aircraft.The probability of a terrorist attack on safari is minimal as the safari lodges and camps Wildlife Safari uses are located deep inside wildlife sanctuaries, where the “residents” have four legs, fly or crawl.All current and future visitors to Kenya should be aware that every possible precaution is being taken to keep them safe. Sadly, terrorism is now a global scourge and cities everywhere are affected. Nairobi is a large city with over four million residents, founded at the turn of the 19th century as a railway siding to become one of Africa’s most prominent political, financial and cultural urban centres. Kenyans are a very proud and resilient people and they will protect their city and country. Nairobi will bounce back.The Wildlife Safari Kenya team is accessible 24/7/365 by telephone or email and they are in constant contact with myself. I am always accessible for our clients, agents and friends via telephone or email. Finally, thank you to our many friends who called, sent texts or emails during the last 24 hours to ask about the Wildlife Safari team in Nairobi. They are all safe and well and look forward to welcoming you on safari soon.”17 January 2019 AfricaNairobiWildlife Safarilast_img read more
