Spending money


I'm off on safari for a week in a couple of weeks for the first leg of my honeymoon - we have already paid for all accomodation and meals so it's only really drinks - we probably won't drink a lot as it will be early mornings so on average how much do you think I should take per night? I assume I would pay the lodges for drinks with schillings rather than credit card?

Thanks in advance - I know it's a hard one to answer!

That is a tough question to answer. I would get about $100 - $200 changed into Tanzania Shillings and use that for drinks and personal expenses. It will probably last you for the entire safari. When you get ready to leave exchange it back into your currency before you get on the airplane out.

It depends on the standard of Lodge. Some will require payment in US$.

Then do not forget the small tip box and perhaps your driver guide.

Do not overdo it but if earned a tip is appreciated.
