Currency & Tipping Guidelines
Money. Please contact your bank and let them know you will be traveling in Tanzania and may be using both debit and credit cards. If your bank doesn't know, they may block access to your card while you are here. On this note, there's no need to bring large quantities of cash. There are ATMs in Moshi and we will make stops for you to take out money. We suggest that each traveler allocates $100-200 for the entire trip. Please note local shops do not often take credit card.
Tipping. Our Discover Corps guides are some of the best! To show your appreciation tips are highly encouraged. You can tip in US Dollars. We suggest $5-8 per day (per person) for our guides (Uweza) and $2-3 per day (per person) for our drivers. Feel free to bring them any gifts from home or write them a note to remember you by. Please note that the tips for any local guide (specifically on the safari) are already taken care of.
