Hi, Looking for some advice here on tipping. I travel to Tanzania a few times a year and always have the same private guide who is excellent by the way. If I'm traveling alone I usually tip him around 150 USD per day. My average stay is 15 days. I thought I 150 per day was fair until today. The person who has guided me for the last 4-5 years moved to a new camp this year so rather than losing him as my guide I'm staying with his new camp. When I received the quote it included a line item for the private guide tip of 250.00 USD per day. I'm traveling alone and staying 16 days so the uncharge is 4000.00. When I inquired about the charge the camp told me the entire fee is passed directly to my guide and that they keep none of it for themselves. This is a reputable camp so I believe that they pass it through. Is 250.00 per day the average tip for private camp guide? Thanks in advance for providing input ...
