Two foreign tourists, German and Swiss nationals, have died after the vehicle they were traveling in went off the road and overturned in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve, police said on Sunday.
The crash occurred after the vehicle’s car got stuck in mud and went off the road on Saturday, police said.
Another tourist was injured and two others, a German and a Swiss, were unhurt. They were part of a tour group, but it was not immediately clear who was driving the vehicle.

The injured tourist was airlifted to a hospital in Kenya’s capital Nairobi, said Stephen ole Mining, chief director of the Maasai Mara.
Police spokesman Resila Onyango said the incident was under investigation.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve is a popular tourist destination and features the annual wildebeest migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania.
The effects of climate change are being felt in the vast wildlife reserve with little vegetation due to five consecutive failed rainy seasons with lower-than-usual rainfall recorded over the past two years.
