Notes

If an extra week is wanted at the Coast, Jane & Rocky can find good deals for either hotels or self-catering houses (Self catering means that you provide the food - somebody else does the cooking and cleaning!). They do not recommend the Coast during school holiday periods as prices rise considerably.

If the trip to Western Kenya during Days 8 - 12 is not wanted, Jane & Rocky can arrange a self catering house on the Coast instead - but you will have to put up with the Hitchcock's as well!
