◗ Visas: Holders of Australian and New Zealand passports will need to apply for visas before travelling to Tanzania and Kenya. ◗ Vaccinations: Yellow fever is required. You will need to produce a vaccination certificate from your doctor. Typhoid and hepatitus A are optional. Malaria tablets are recommended. ◗ Tipping: This is at your discretion, but is standard practice. As a guide, drivers receive $US12 a day, per person; lodge/camp staff $US10 a day per person. ◗ What to pack: Neutral coloured clothing (khaki, green, beige, brown) to prevent animals from seeing you or being distracted by you in parks. It is illegal to wear military-type, camouflage clothing. Blue should be avoided as it attracts the tsetse fly. ◗ Money: Most hotels, lodges and shops accept US dollars so it is not necessary to convert into local currency. Of note: when travelling in Africa with US currency, it is recommended that you use only banknotes printed within the last few years. Many merchants and service providers will not accept currency that is more than a few years old. Wrinkled, torn or faded bills are also generally not accepted.
