   ***  Note that most costs in Kenya and Tanzania are reasonable.  However, you must
          
bargain hard at roadside souvenir stands to get a good price on such items.

   ***  I would suggest that you take most of your spending money in the form of traveller's
          
cheques in American funds. 

   ***  Many places in Kenya and Tanzania will accept your credit cards (Visa, etc.) for
          
payment; particularly lodges, hotels, some stores, and balloon operators. 

   ***  The currency used is Tanzania shillings or Kenya shillings.  The systems are easy to
          
grasp.
