Can anyone suggest how/where I can buy mobile data for my phone whist I'm in Kenya and Tanzania. I'll be on safari so I won't be in the city with access to Cafes with wifi. I won't need to make calls but just need data. ;)

Just buy a SIM card when you get there for your GSM phone. In many places, it includes talk, text and data. I traveled in West Africa last October; and a couple of my companions carried smartphones that used cellular data, even in parts of the Sahara. The cost was reasonable. I was so impressed that I now carry a smartphone; and have used it successfully in South America, where I am now traveling.
