Cash-ATMs-Tips

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  (10 Answers)

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!

how do tour operators operate from nairobi??  (17 Answers)

there are numerous tour operators in nairobi offering safari packages which looks very expensive.....
once we book with them how do they operate??
after transfering from nairobi to the hotel in masai mara for example and then will we be using same vehicle for the game drive inside the park??? or different vehicle belonging to the game park??...i guess u need an expert driver who knows where exactly the animals are located in the game park .
if i book hotel online in masai mara....do the hotels arrange game drives ....by this way it will workout cheaper and can get an expert driver to take us inside the park.....
in simple words...booking hotel online and using the game park vehicles better or using tour operator vehicle better...
