1. Re: Currency

We take dollars for the entry visa and sterling which we change on arrival - not at the coast hotels as they give a terrible rate. We use either the bank at the airport or Coast Forex in Mombasa.

We also take our debit/credit cards for use in the ATMs. Do tell your bank that you will be using your cards in Kenya to avoid a lengthy call back to the UK and a red face at the till!

Safari drivers - if they've done a good job we usually tip 500 shillings per person per day.
