I just found out a USA citizen must get your Mozzie visa before leaving the states. The single entrance visa is good for two months but one can only stay a month.

Okay so this is kind of embarrassing that I have to post this but I really need help...I just moved into Egypt a month ago and I am living in Dokki while studying Arabic. So far things have been great but I am worried that I have bed bugs or something. I stayed in a hostel the first week and one of the mornings I woke up and had two bug bites on my arm--the window had been open but as far as I know mosquitoes aren't a huge problem in Cairo. Now I am living with an Egyptian girl in Dokki and I…

Hi!

Next month I will come to Mauritius with my family to celebrate my parents 45th wedding anniversary. We are with 8 adults and 3 kids (6,3,1). To surprise our parents we would like to organize a special activity including a lunch. We are staying in a nice hotel at the beach so would like to do something more adventurous and in a local/rural setting.
Since the activity should be suitable for everybody, we are quite limited in our options (hiking,adseiling is not possible etc)
We came up with…

Hi,
This follows on from my previous post.
We caught the bus from Mtwara at a very reasonable hour in stead of the usual 5am start for the very pleasant 5 hour journey to Newala arriving in the early afternoon. The locals at the bus stand directed us down the road to a reasonable guest house, clean and cheap, I can't remember the name but as you leave the bus stand turn left and head down the long straight road and after about 1/2 it is on your right.
We asked at reception about getting to God's…

Hi,
Sorry but I have not posted on her for well over a year and been back to Tz twice since then so just an up date on my adventures.
In July last year I met my long time friend (my guide on Kili in 208) at Dar, not a place I like to stay very long in but on this occasion I needed to stay for a day before my onward journey. My friend uncle Yoda drives a taxi so getting around is not a problem (apart from the horrendous traffic!) and we spent a pleasant day at coco beach. As usual I stayed at the…

Just want to get any suggestions or comments on our itinerary, particularly if we should keep the 7 day safari or reduce down to 6 day safari to expand just a bit more time in Zanzibar at the end. We want to do safari, climb Kili and finish at Zanzibar. We originally were going to try to do the 5 day Marangu route but to increase our chances for success we will now do the 6 day trek instead. I would ideally like to keep the 7 day safari, but I am concerned about how rushed we might feel in…
