Hi Wendy, Tanzanite is only mined in certain areas of Tanzania and most people travelling to East Africa will purchase it in Arusha, Tanzania. Obviously the AYU trip goes through Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya. I believe there are however a few places in Nairobi which will sell tanzanite. I recommend contacting the Kenya tourist board for more information: http://www.tourism.go.ke/
All Exodus cooks on East Africa trip have been fully trained and hygene is very important. The overland vehicle contains a large drinking water tank and this is only filled from two sources - highland spring water in Rwanda and treated water in Nairobi. Water for cooking is boiled. The local team also have washing and hygene rules whilst on the trip and these will be explained in the leader briefing at the start of the trip. I hope this all helps. Best regards, Lesley (Trip manager)
