British Supermodel Naomi Campbell has allayed any fears of insecurity in Kenya after spending her Easter holidays in the popular tourist town of Malindi.

Campbell jetted into Malindi in a private local charter flight on Sunday, a few minutes before 5pm, and was driven in a Range Rover Vogue belonging to Italian billionaire Flavio Briatore.

She was staying at the super-exclusive Lion In The Sun beach resort owned by Briatore, Campbell’s ex-boyfriend.

Besides touring the Kenyan coast and Sardinia Due, an island in the Indian Ocean near Watamu, the model also spent times with kids and took to Instagram to share a picture with the “beautiful souls.”

Speaking to foreign journalists at the resort, the supermodel had this to say about Kenya:

“Many people discouraged me from coming to Kenya, saying the country was not yet safe to visit. But I insisted that I would come and here I am. I feel quite safe. I didn’t feel anything different from the way I have felt during my previous visits. There is tranquility here. People should not shy away from visiting Kenya.”

“Life in Kenya is natural and beautiful,” she added.

#happy #goodfriday #blessed to be around these beautiful souls ❤🙏🏾🇰🇪 @Briatoreflavio

This was not her first visit to the country though. Her most recent visit was in January 2014 when she holidayed with her ex-boyfriend, Italian billionaire Flavio Briatore.
