I know there has been several treads about this subject but I need to get some help regarding tipping, money to carry etc.
I am going solo on a couple of camping safaris. The first one I'll be going with a group for only 4 days. We will be staying at different campsites. I believe there is a dinning area for the whole campsite.
So I'm wondering how much should I plan for tipping (not trying to solve hunger in Africa since I don't have the budget) but would like to be safe.
The second safari I signed up to join a group, but so far they have not found anybody, so this might turn into a private sans the extra charge (TZ).
I've been told that there will be a guide and a cook, so it sounds that I would be spending more $$ for tipping.
The TO told me that when traveling with another person or more the tipping is divided among the group, but as a solo I can't afford taking the responsibility to pay as a vehicle full of people
How much should I be planning for tipping for a 5 days budget camping safari
The other question I have is how much $$ to carry. I have pre-paid most of my trip. The only thing that I'm anticipating will be Visas, one hotel, transportation.
On this trip I'm going to take cash and 2 debit cards (Emergency money).
I was thinking taking a couple of $100 one will be to pay for the TNZ Visa, should I take the rest of the cash in $20, or ??. I do plan to take $1, for emergency, tipping or buying small items.
