How much cash to bring on safari/Zanzibar honeymoon?

I will be going to Tanzania for 3 weeks in July for my honeymoon. We will spend one week climbing the Machame route of Kilimanjaro, then one week on safari (the budget tented type), and the one week on Zanzibar.

We're just trying to get an idea of how much cash to bring. Everything for the first two weeks is pretty much included, except for some meals in Arusha, but on Zanzibar, we'll have to pay for our meals and activities. We're looking forward to eating at Emerson & Greene and Sambusa Two Tables. We'd like to swim with the dolphins (unless people convince us it's bad for the animals!), go snorkeling, and we'd like to purchase gifts for people back home and ourselves. We're not huge drinkers, but will probably have one or two drinks each at dinner.

What is the average cost of souvenirs and gifts?

How much did anyone else spend on a similar trip? Are meals expensive? Is there a guideline for how much to bring in general?

What denomination should we bring? Twenties? Do we need to bring singles?

I appreciate any advice! Thanks in advance.
