It is normal to give the guide 15-20$ in tips per day, and the cook 10-15$ per day.
On safari it is not allowed to step out of the car except on special places in the park. Always follow the guide’s recommendations. It is only allowed to drive on the roads in the park. For Wild Tracks it is very important that the animal’s lives should not be disturbed during safari. So do not ask the guide to drive outside the roads to get closer to the animals, because this is illegal. You are allowed to drive in the park from 6 am to 6 pm.
Good things to bring on safari:- Sun screen
- Sunhat (standing in the car can carry a lot of sun, sand and wind in your hair)
- Sun glasses
- Wet tissues
- Mosquito spray or oil
- Flashlight/ Head flashlight
- Warm clothes for the evening
- Shorts/t-shirt for the day
- Toilet equipment
Some of the hotels in and around the parks don’t provide you with power some parts of the day (usually in the middle of the night). Make sure you charge everything you need when you have power.
Stone Town is the only place in Zanzibar with ATMs.
