using US dollars

ADD TO MY TRIP

When in Kenya and using American dollars take with you notes printed after 2003. i had 100 dollar bills that were dated 1997 and had a lot of trouble getting rid of them. My tour company wouldn't accept them, the banks don't accept them and currency exchange places give you a much lower exchange rate. I had to sell my 100 dollar bill on the black market in some dodgy little back shop. it was a surreal and not so nice experience.
