1. Re: advice on clothing repellants etc


Welcome to the forum, if you go to the Mombasa forum page, there is a lot of information on weather, what to pack for going on safari, etc in the FAQs on the right side of thepage, here


As for repellents, any repellent that has 50% DEET in it (Boots own brand, Lifeventure, Jungle Formula) will be effective for up to 12 hours but some people do not like it as it has a strong solvent in it. Natural repellents like Mosi-Guard or any that is based on Citronella are effective, but may need to be reapplied as they do not last as long.

For tipping, this will give you some idea
