-In regards to Shillings. Tanzanian chillings are quite easy to understand, as 10US$ is like 12 Tanzanian Chillings. In Kenya works different. You have to divide the amount times 60 and then you have it in dollars.

-Airports have good exchange rate! although sometimes hotels are not bad either.

-Remember, when you fly to Tanzania you pay 50$ in taxes at the airport and if you go from Tanzania to Kenya you will also pay an extra 50$. It is a VISA for 3 months what you pay.

-If you went to Zanzibar, they also have a 30$ fee. Damn so many fees I did not count with :)

-We exchange the money in every country... bringing dollars you will not have a problem whatsover...

-Bring many 1 dollar bills or get many 500 tanzania chilling bills. You have to tip for everything :)

-By the way, DONT FORGET TO TAKE WITH YOU A BIG CASE OF BALLPENS. Kids are always asking for them!!!! take them! that way you will not have problems taking photos!
