Any Restrictions?

We're heading to Tanzania for a first-time safari with another couple in several weeks.

I wonder if there is any advice on things that we should definitely not take with us. (I remember reading some time ago advice not to bring camouflage clothing and wonder if there is anything else we should avoid?)

Specifically -- An acquaintance makes a yearly trip to Tanzania to work in a rural medical clinic, and she suggested that we bring vitamin pills. (Our tour operator has an arrangement with a school, and the thought of bringing vitamins to give to the school to administer to the children intrigues me.) If we were to do so, would we have a problem getting the vitamins into the country? (They would be in sealed plastic jars and would clearly state that they are vitamins, etc.)

Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
