Kenya is quite cheap even by African standards. Prices here are comparable to prices in Egypt or India.
If you come to Kenya, stay in more or less comfortable hotels, eat in medium-sized establishments, use a taxi and from time to time visit bars and see the sights, then the daily budget will be about 3000-4000 Kenyan shillings (36-48 US dollars) for one person (the current rate of KES to the ruble, the dollar and other currencies of the world can be viewed on the currency converter on the right). However, the costs will increase immeasurably if you afford expensive tourist activities, such as diving, trips to national parks or safaris.
