I'm in the middle of the same trip (Tanzania). I know everyone says you can do it all on thruppence a day, and some people say don't leave home without a platinum amex, but I reckon it depends largely on (a) how much
you drink (b) how many accidents you have (c) how many times you have to go home for a funeral. If the answer to all of these is "none", then you could maybe manage on - oh I dunno - 20-25 US dollars a day. If, like me, you tend to drink rather a lot, double that seems to work for me. And that allows you money to have one expensive accident, and also fly home for a week for 1 funeral.
That was a great "brides" gag BTW Mike!!
