Various Taxes

Many airports in East Africa have a departure tax; this tax is usually paid on site, in cash and in US dollars. In addition, there are often short notice changes to East Africa’s tax law (e.g. introduction of infrastructure tax) which is why we highly recommend that you set aside approx. 50 USD per person in small bills for such often unforeseen expenses.
