calling US from Kenya, Tanzania & Egypt

Hi, will be leaving in 2 days and would like to know what's the best way to call US? Are phone cards available for purchase and are pay phones accessible outside cities? Thanks.

Hi, I am going on a Kenyan safari in a week's time. I will be visiting (hotels in brackets) - Samburu (Larsens Tented Lodge), Treetops, Lake Naivasha (Lake Naivasha Country Club) and Masai Mara (Keekorok Lodge) during my trip. I have 2 questions:
1. Do these lodges have telephone facilities which permit me to receive calls from home?
2. I have a mobile phone (with romaing in Kenya). Will the mobile phone function in these game parks?

Even in Cairo calling US was difficult. Tried pay phones - never could get a connection. Some had instructions in English, but often translation was odd and difficult to follow. Ended up using call center in large hotel - you give them number you want to call, a lot of money, and get a scratchy connection with an echo. Can't imagine it would be any easier outside a city.
