Frequently Asked Questions
About Your Trip
To pack so much into a short time, there are some long drives and although the distances are not great, some of the roads are quite poor and bumpy especially after the rainy seasons. We include breaks for toilet facilities, shopping, photos and meals as much as possible, so you can strech your legs at various times during the day. The spectacular scenery and glimpses of village life when travelling make the journeys more enjoyable but come prepared with a sense of adventure (and humour) for a holiday of a lifetime!

For British passport holders, it's very straightforward. You need a clean $50 dollar bill (notes issued before 2001 are NOT accepted ) and the window is on the right as you enter the arrivals building. Please note passports and visas are your own responsibility and we cannot be responsible for any problems you may encounter.

This is a full service camping trip, where all the camp duties are performed for you, although if you want to muck in and help this is possible!! Although the camping will be comfortable there may not always be full washing facilities, so you need to come prepared for this, it is a remote safari experience.
Whilst on safari we camp, in large safari tents, with aluminium camp beds, mattresses and sleeping bags provided. We have a small generator which is used for storage for the food, but there are also small electric lanterns . At dinner time chairs and tables are also provided.

Dinner will be a full cooked meal, usually soup, followed by either stews or cooked meats or fish and fruit for pudding. Fresh drinking water is supplied throughout.

US dollars cash is best, and this is changed into the local currency, the Shilling. We price most activities in our trip notes in dollars, simply to make it easier to calculate costs but you will not be spending dollars directly.
Certain optional activities may be possible to pay in dollars but please note that dollars are not legal tender in Tanzania. There are some ATMs in Arusha and Stonetown, but money is best changed upon arrival at Kilimanjaro airport.
