Very difficult to say, honestly.
Some respectable opinions are saying there will be very little to worry about. Others are saying, it's time to make contingency plans.
The UN and US embassies are all having talks regarding contingency plans.
If this election is anything like 2007/2008, there will be very little issues in the areas between safari destinations. People who were on safari last time experienced no issues.
I would say, in general, tourism operations will continue as much as possible, and transport by road or air should be fine. however, Sangeeta, if you're thinking of changing to flights instead of road transport, you should make those changes soon.
Tourism is going to be quite low at that period as many people do not want to be in the country around that time. I do know, however, that plenty of camps, lodges, hotels and tour operators will still be in business. So they're not expecting "the worst".
I, for one, will still be here in Kenya and continuing with my daily life, but I have my "Plan A, B, and C".
