The strength of the Aussie dollar means people down under are in a great position to secure a bargain when looking for foreign holidays.

For those who fancy doing something a little more adventurous, an Africa safari tour can be a great option.

Angie Sloan – regional director of the Kenya Tourist Board UK and Ireland – suggested the nation is not only a fantastic place to see rare animals, but it is also one of the most romantic places in the world.

"With luxury lodges in its national parks, boutique hotels in Nairobi and high-end resorts dotted along 300 miles of pristine white-sand coastline, Kenya's accommodation offerings are designed to suit varying tastes," she remarked.

But how much will it cost Australians to visit such places?

Although your flights may be expensive, the cost of living in Kenya is very low, so your overseas travel money will go much further.

At the moment, one Aussie dollar will get you in the region of 85 Kenyan shillings.
