Kenya & Tanzania: 15-day camping safari

We are booking GAP 15-day participation camping safari in Serengeti and Masai Mara. We have some questions as we prepare for the trip.

1. What is the weather like in early Oct? What should be the proper day wear (e.g. long/short sleeves)? Night? What kind of sleeping bag should we buy?

2. We will bring a 36-430mm camera. Do we need more telezoom power? Would a tripod be useful any time?

3. What type of electric outlet is in used there? The following page listed Kenya and Tanzania as Type G. Would anyone confirm it?

4. How bad is the insect problem? Do we need to wear long sleeves/pants all the time? How about headnet? Is OFF effective? What concentration do I need? How much do I need?

5. How is humidity at night? Do we need to worry about everything gets wet in the tent? Should we some waterproof bags?

6. Airport transport. The tour operator charge a lot for a pickup. Is it easy and safe to get a taxi at the airport?

7. We plan to stay at Kenya Comfort Hotel . Has anyone stayed there? Any comment?

8. In the middle of the trip, we will be back at the hotel for a day. Is it easy and safe to get laundry done nearby?

9. We plan to carry our laptop with us to record the trip. Is there any problem?

Your help is highly appreciated!
