      Cash-ATMs-Tips

      Kenya Aug 8, 2016 at 12:48 PM

      Planning 3 weeks of independent travel in Kenya and Rwanda at 4 different safari camps. Tipping guidelines suggest that I will need a fair amount of cash in small denominations. We would prefer not to carry it all with us throughout the trip. We'll have a couple of transfers at Wilson airport, where I assume we'll have access to an ATM (how reliable?) but most likely not in smaller villages. What currencies can I expect to have access to? What currencies will I want? (I'll be starting with US dollars).

      Thanks

      query on visiting times for reserves due to health concerns

      Kenya Jun 8, 2016 at 6:27 AM

      Visiting Kenya and Masai Mara specially is on top of our must do´s. However recent health concerns include not tolerating hot weather or a high UV for even a couple of hours. I know there are morning visits to the reserves and also afternoon ones. If we choose to do just the mornings, would it be worth while and would it be cool or hot already? This may seem like an obvious one but i do not want to lose the chance of seeing nature and yet want to take the right decision so as not to spoil our holiday. My husband wants to gift us this trip for my 50th birthday :) Please advise!
