we tipped the room staff 100 shillings per day (about 80 pence)

Lonely planet suggests 200 shillings per day per person for drivers but we tipped around 300 per person per day

bar staff - tip when you get good service - it isnt necessary every time..

Unlike so many other countries we have been to, the staff dont seem to linger waiting for tips but they do really appreciate when you do tip.

Hope this helps
