Questions for the next trip

The G Adventures Watering Hole - Travel Forum • View forum - Africa and Middle East - wateringhole.gadventures.com
Hello,

I am almost ready to book a trip!!!! - hopefully I can get enough time for the DCN trip, but I do have a few questions...

1- Vaccinations - I have visited a travel clinic and reviewed the vaccinations I may need including typhoid, yellow fever, tetanus, etc. They also recommended meningitis. When travelling on an overland trip in Southern/Eastern Africa, is this recommended?

2- Money - I have read that banks and ATM's are available in most parts. Can you get US dollars from some banks in South & East Africa, or should I bring all the US dollars I think I may need when I go to Africa?

3- Kitty – when paying for the kitty, can I pay in large bills (100’s) or should they be small bills?

4- Sleeping pads - I read that GAP provides foam mats that are about 2" thick. Have people found these comfortable, or recommend to bring extra sleep mats (air - self inflating) for comfort - especially if camping for many nights with a not-so-good back.

5- Visa's - It seems like it is easy to get travel visa's at the border - Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, etc. When going through the border, do I need to take passport pictures with me for when I apply for a visa at the border?

Sorry for all the questions...
