Hi Janet

I believe it is 35 pounds to apply to the embassey in london for the visa, but you have to send passport, so recorded delivery, 50 us dollars on arrival at the airport.

Are you staying at the Mombassa beach hotel ?

Have a good holiday

You have to send your passport plus a passport sized photo and recorded delivery costs in BOTH directions, we just wanted one less thing to bother about on arrival in Nairobi but advance purchasing does add to the overall cost.

As for "how much money to take" - depends what you want to do and how much money you've got in the first place! Some go on a short safari and spend the rest of their time parked by the pool/beach. Others want to go out and about all the time seeing everything they can so they spend a lot more.

Think Bruce596 has put some basic 'costs' of things in the GO lists which might help.
