    Any recommended mid-range Safari operators in Tanzania for a solo traveler?

    Yes, I run a sister school program linking schools in the United States with Tanzania and we go on safari after 10 days of working at the school. We typically go to Tarangire once a year, and the Safari lodge is our favorite. I recommend rickshaw travel, speak to Deepak and let him know that Karen and John we sent you and for a recommended packing list, visit our website where you can link to get our tried and true top 10 things you need, but may not know to bring www.waterpowerpeace.com about 7 years ago

    I'm launching a volunteer program in Malawi. Is it possible to assume that the majority of the locals will be able to speak English?

    No definitely not, I run a volunteer program that links schools in the United States with schools in Africa and India, and do quite a bit of work in Tanzania. Although English is required in schools in Tanzania, particularly in the rural areas knowledge of English is quite scarce. If you want help or recommendations, you can visit our projects at www.waterpowerpeace.com after bringing many groups of middle school students and volunteers over to Africa, we have several recommendations on what to bring with you. good luck about 7 years ago

    What's the weather like in East Africa this time of the year?

    Yes it depends, but it's pretty safe to say that right now it is nice although hot during the days and it can get cool in the evenings, you will need a sweater what jacket. Depending on where you stay, you can get quite stuffy at night, our groups usually bring small travel fans to keep the air moving in guesthouses. I have a recommended packing list based on the many chipset done to East Africa with our sister school program which you can see at www.waterpowerpeace.org. I travel there every summer with groups of students and every autumn with groups of engineers and teachers. about 7 years ago
