How much to give as a tip to safari crew?

Regardless of the size of your expedition, we recommend budgeting around $50 – $100.
You can tip in Tanzania Shillings (TZS) or US Dollars but for simplicity-sake, we suggest tipping in USD. Be sure to bring small bills.

Should I carry anything at all? What luggage should I pack?

Your daypack should contain any clothes needed for that day and any personal belongings like your camera or passport.
It is important to keep luggage to the barest minimum when on safari, as this will ease the burden of the drivers, vehicles and cook. Baggage should be of the round squashy type rather than hard suitcases that are difficult to fit into vehicle. Try to use something that is both lockable and water proof as luggage can often end up sitting on the roof of the vehicle.
It is a good idea to bring another smaller bag so that unwanted clothes can be kept in it at the hotel or our office when you go on safari. This also helps to keep city clothes clean and free from dust. You should also bring a small day pack which can be carried while riding or can be readily accessible when you are traveling in the vehicles on long drives. On camping trips all equipment will be provided.
It should be noted that the luggage limit per person on domestic flights is 15-20 kg per person (checked-in and hand luggage).
On your inbound flight, don’t check in items that you absolutely need (such as medicines), as it is not uncommon that checked-in luggage gets misdirected and arrives in Tanzania a couple of days after you. It is better to have such items in your hand luggage. Contact us for tailor made safari.

What are the vehicles like?

Vehicles used are generally Toyota Land Cruisers or Land Rovers, as they are most suitable to the terrain. Our drivers are ultimate. They have been trained by in customer relationship, tourism-related topics, environmental issues and vehicle maintenance. These drivers are always experienced, reliable and very knowledgeable of the areas they will take you.

Who will be my guide?

All groups and individual travelers will be provided with an English speaking Tanzanian guide. Some of the guides also speak Spanish or German. They are trained and experienced in leading trips and knowledgeable about the fauna, flora and many more aspects of their country. Often they become lifelong friends with the travelers. Interactions with staff are often the highlight of people’s trips. It is a great way to get to know the real life of Tanzania.

Can I leave some of my luggage in the hotel during safari?

Yes! you will be staying at the same hotel before and after your trip in Moshi or Arusha. Leaving an extra bag at either hotel during your safari tour is free of charge.

Do I need any immunization of medicine?

Talk to your physician and follow recommended CDC guidelines for Tanzania.
We recommend talking to your doctor about the use of any prescription medicine.
Yellow Fever Vaccination Cards are required for some travelers depending on their travel itinerary. The government of Tanzania requires proof of yellow fever vaccination upon arrival if you are traveling from a country with risk of yellow fever (this does not include the US). If you’re traveling from any of the countries listed in this link, a yellow fever vaccine is required.
Question on vaccines? Call your local Travel Medicine Clinic or Yellow Fever Vaccination Clinic

Will we need to filter water?

Safe bottled drinking water will be provided to you along the safari. When in Moshi or Arusha, be sure to only drink bottled water and do not use tap water to brush your teeth.

Anything else I should know?

We always ask that you stay safe on safari tour by drinking enough water, eating well, and communicating openly with your guide about any issues that arise. Be sure to take care of your belongings, be respectful of your travel companions, practice your Swahili with the people you meet along the way, and respect the natural landscape that you’re exploring.
