They decide to go to England (Malcolm) and Ireland (Donalbain) for their own safety. They believe that being separated will keep them safer. Donalbain sums this strategy below:

To Ireland, I. Our separated fortune
Shall keep us both the safer. Where we are,
There’s daggers in men’s smiles. The near in blood,
The nearer bloody. Act 2 sc 3
