FOREX Nairobi airport

Does the FOREX at the Nairobi airport take Visa/Mastercard or only US$ (to change from US$). Am heading to safari and am afraid cannot get enough from the ATM.

I replied yesterday but not sure where it went.\
Don't know about plastic for Ksh, but the max daily from
ATM is 40k Ksh

I've never withdrawn more than $100 worth(about 8K Ksh). and whatever is left over use for staff tips.

However, except for time in NBO where they prefer their own currency, elsewhere USD are accepted for guides, staff and souvenirs.

And I do likewise in Tanzania, only a small amount of Tsh ($50-100 worth) and USD for everything else.

Generally people prefer not to use plastic as no assurance someone isn't skimming card numbers.
