Tipping in Tanzanir

Could anyone tell me what is a good amount to tip cab driver, bellboys, restaurants, etc? Do they prefer dollars versus Tanzanir shillings?

Should I try to exchange some money at the airport?

Thanks.

I just returned from my trip there.
For cabs, I tipped when they helped with my luggage. Cabbies and bellboys got $1-2.

Restaurants get tipped about 10%.

The dollar is definitely preferred to shillings, but shillings are fine.

If you want to bargain or shop, it's best to have dollars.
