Kenya

Currency: Kenyan Shilling (Ksh, KES). In Mombasa, Nairobi and tourist areas, US dollars (sometimes Euros) are widely accepted with many hotels, camps, and restaurants accepting credit cards. Tips should be left in Ksh (local money) as service staff are paid very low wages and charged fees to convert other currencies. If using US dollars, use newer bills no older than 2009. When converting cash, try to get small bills as it is very hard to get change for large bills.
Local custom: Prices frequently include service charges (tips) as well as taxes, so check first.
