Planning Your Safari is important and there are several things to consider in your preparations. Whether it's taking into consideration the climate, what documents you need to have in order to enter Tanzania or what to expect when shopping, this information is important to consider.
What to Pack is important to consider whether you are planning a game safari or a trek up the mountains but probably more so when climbing the mountains as you will need certain types of clothing and equipment to ensure your safety and comfort.
Health & Logistics. When preparing for your climb up the mountains or heading out into wilds away from human civilisation, it is worth considering the realities of what you will face and to take necessary precautions.
Physical Preparation. Climbing mountains is no easy task - not when you're talking the highest peak in Africa or one close to it. Making sure you're in good physical shape before attempting such a challenge would be well worth the effort.
Photography. Whether you are heading out to see the wild animals or climb the heights of the mountains, you will want to take photos to document your experience. When entering into dusty environments or temperatures well below freezing, you will want to be aware of how to protect your camera in order to have those photos to look back over for years to come.
Tipping Ettiquette. The guides and staff that will be taking care of you on your safari or climb are dependent on your tips as part of their wages. It is good to be aware of what is appropriate and what is not.
