We understand that you want to take as many pictures of the beautiful country as possible, but before you begin to take pictures of houses or people, ask for their permission. In some cases, you may be required to offer a tip for those pictures.

Money & Valuables

When switching currency do so in a reputable hotel, foreign exchange bureau or bank.

Do not display your valuables to the world to avoid being the target of theft.

Only carry what you need in regards to money when venturing out.

Tipping is OK although not mandatory in most places. A tip of $5 (or equivalent) is acceptable for most services.


If you are going on a safari, watch your clothing choices. Bright colors (such as whites and blues) attract wild animals as well as insects. Camouflage clothing, is in some cases, illegal to wear.

Drinking Water

it is safer to drink bottled or mineral water.


Never approach a wild animal, even if they appear harmless.
