My fiancee and i are travelling to kenya for our honeymoon, staying at the TBBC Watamu on March 16th for 2weeks with Thomson and cant wait! i have read many questions on these forums since i booked, but i am still no closer to the info i require due to many conflicting answers!! If somebody could help me with my questions i would really appreciate it.
Firstly currency. Can i use travellers cheques in Watamu? Should i take us dollars or english pound to pay for the Safari and other trips or is local currency ok?
Secondly visa. Do i need to do anything before i travel or is it sorted out on the plane or when we arrive?
Safaris. I have emailed a few different safari companies who have all replied with quite different prices for the ideas i have proposed to them. Can i haggle to try and get a better price? Should i book before i travel or leave it till i arrive and book then?
Lastly, i am looking to charter a 'big game' fishing boat whilst i am there, so if anybody is there at the same time and would b willing to share the cost, you are more than welcome!
As you all can probably tell we are complete novice travellers! As a young couple we only have a handful of 'party island' holidays between us and the odd trip to las vegas, and are new to Africa. Kenya has always been somewhere i have wanted to visit as my grand parents lived there in the 60s, and i have been brought up on stories of its beauty. I Look forward to your answers, if you havnt all fell asleep reading this!!
