Spending Money

You will need spending money to cover drinks, lunch and souvenirs and different incidentals whilst on tour such as cheap excursions costing under $10

Tipping is customary in Africa, so budget for gratuities if you wish for guides or drivers who provide good service such as your guides on the hippo cruise. Again it is at your discretion, but your tour leader and driver will appreciate a tip to acknowledge their hard work during your tour.

Some campsites en route also have simple huts or chalets in which you can stay if you feel like a break from camping. Spending money is then also needed to cover if you want to occasionally upgrade from your tent!

The recommended spending money for A Week in Kenya is: US$135 - US$180
