Money query


Just wondering if anyone who has been on this trip could advise me about how much money I am likely to need for trip?

I'm planning on taking US dollars, but not sure how much to bring - really don't want to be caught short and miss out on anything, but also don't want to have loads of dollars left over when I get back.

I was thinking about taking £750 - does this sound ludicrous?

Are the places we'll visit fairly safe?

Any advice would be gratefully received!




That seems like loads.  I can't remember what I took, but I reckon it would have been little more than £300, but I paid for a rafting trip on my credit card when I was there.



US dollars are definitely the way to go. Something Exodus doesn't say, is to take larger notes to exchange, because you get a better exchange rate.

We spent £600, including the £300 for the balloon flight.

I made the mistake for taking some travellers cheques, which I couldn't change anywhere. I was able to use them to pay for the balloon flight though.

Most places charge between 5 & 10% for using your credit card.

Can anyone please give me some advice of what to wear please, are shorts etc ok I know what I will need for the Gorillas but its the rest I'm not too sure about. What was the balloon trip like, and does everyone tend to go on it? I want to but my husband doesn't! Any further advice would be appreciated, we go in Sept. Manyt thanks Sandra
