*Pricing Notes and More Details:
US Dollar Pricing: The Kenyan currency, the Kenya Shilling, has been relatively stable against the US Dollar in the last few years (fluctuating around 100 Shillings per US Dollar). Because of this stability, lodges and vehicle rental and other logistical costs are often priced in US Dollars. Thus, we use US Dollars as the currency for pricing this trip. Trip prices for 2019 and 2020 for our trip to Kenya are fixed in US Dollars.
Pricing in British Pounds: The GBP price indicated above is based on the April 10, 2019 exchange rate of 0.775 GBP per US Dollar. The trip price is fixed in US Dollars, and the final charges for the trip will be based upon the actual exchange rates we pay. Though we work to minimize bank charges with banking in Canada and in the United Kingdom, banks do often charge about 1.5% to for making the exchange.
Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom and/or Canada.
Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does include lunch and supper, as most flights arrive in the morning. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most flights leave in the morning.
Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at meal time. Most beverages are your choice and are an additional expense which you pay to the restaurant directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day.
Group Size: We anticipate a group of 6 to 7 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size. Group size for Kenya Coastal Extension is 4 to 6 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size.
