HELP. How much cash to bring

Jump to last reply

We are down to 9 days before to fly to NBO for our first trip to Africa. we will be there 23 days(17 days on safari, 2 days at an orphanage, and 4 days at beaches in Zanzibar.
I m getting that nervous feeling. It is just my wife and myself going with SI. Si has been great helping with everything. We will be doing mostly safaris in Kenya and Tanzania doing mostly safaris along with a few hikes sprinkle in staying at tents/lodges. In Zanzibar we will be staying Stonetown 2 days doing some trips and exploring the town and 2 days at a beach resort.
I m trying to figure out how much cash to bring and what denominations for tipping, spending, visas, trips, etc. Also, where can I use my credit card to limit the cash and also whether to exchange some US currency. I know about the new cash. We will be doing a little shopping but not that much. While I m on shopping my daughter wants a pair of Tanzania earrings.
We will be in Arusha and Stonetown. Are either of them a good place to get them? Thanks such very much.
