      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?
