Tips

Central and North Burnett Times - - READ -

◗ 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.
