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 ...
Having had a fantastic safari last year in Tanzania( Selous, Ruaha, Katavi, Serengeti - report posted in Trip reports , Tanzania ), we have now decided our next safari will be ( provisionally ) to Zambia in 2017. We are thinking of two weeks -most likely to include South Luangwa and Kafue. We have never been to Zambia before ( other than Victoria Falls), so would welcome comments, advice , suggestions, tips, etc , regarding locations, camps,time of year , etc. Early days yet but two things are decided for definite, we will be booking it with ATR and the maximum budget, excluding international flights, will be £6000 ($9000) per person. Obviously I can get a lot of info from ATR's website but would also prefer to have, as well, the advice of those of you who have been there. All suggestions welcome, please.....
