      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).

      Taxis/car service in Nairobi

      Nairobi Aug 18, 2016 at 7:32 AM

      I understand that taxis in Nairobi can be a bit dicey, in terms of security. Can taxis and car services arranged through my hotel (a fairly upscale Western hotel) be considered reliable?

      I'm in Malindi right now with my wife and our 16 month son. We are looking for tips of where to go or what to do to entertain our son. He's wild as hell and doesn't want to sit still for more than 5 minutes. We regularly hit the beach but there must be something else as well. Well be here for another 2 weeks

      rainy season in Kenya

      by sheldon77 Online Now Feb 12, 2006 at 7:48 AM

      Hi, I'm off to Malindi, Kenya at the end of April and really looking forward to it, being my first trip to the African continent. The only thing I would like to know though, is how rainy is the rainy season? I'm hoping it's not going to be two weeks of solid rain, although im sure we can still find things to do. So should I be packing my dinghy and paddle, or is it just a case of sporadic down pours with sunny intervals? Any feedback would be most welcome. thanks.
