                                       GENERAL INFORMATION
                                                         Getting Started
Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) is the preferred airport for hunts in Lake Natron South, Rungwa Ikili and Combination
Area hunts. The Outfitter’s base office is located in Arusha and is an hour’s drive away. Due to the high charter cost in Tanzania,
the preferred airport for any hunts in the Selous will be Dar es Salaam (DAR). Due to the potential for delayed arrival of your
baggage off the international flights, we highly recommend arranging your flights to arrive a full 24 or more hours in advance of
the date listed for your first day of safari. Please note the information listed on your invoice & Safari Notes for these dates, or
contact the TAI office for assistance. Hotels will be reserved depending on your arrival date into JRO or DAR.
TWC is not responsible for any baggage delays, and the hiring of a special charter to deliver baggage and firearms into camp is
very expensive and causes delays in your safari.

KLM and British Airways (BA) have daily flights from Europe. In addition, flights are also offered by Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines,
South African Airlines, and Kenyan Airlines. Most flights arrive in Tanzania in the evening. You will spend the night in Arusha or
Dar Es Salaam, before departing for the hunting area the following day. Hotel accommodation will be arranged by our Tanzanian
office for your hunting party. Please be aware that any cost incurred for accommodation is the responsibility of the client / group.
The current rate per person per night (dinner, bed & breakfast) is estimated at US$ 250-350 depending on city of arrival.

International flights normally depart in the late evenings and you should have enough time to connect to your International Flight
on the same day as your charter from the hunting area.

                                                          Meet & Greet
A TWC agent/licensing officer will meet you and your hunting party at JRO or DAR airports to assist with clearing through
customs, collection of baggage, and transport to and from the hotel and charter area. These agents will be recognizable by their
TWC logo shirts and/or caps, and/or will be holding a sign with your party’s names listed. Clients arriving at JRO will be met by
agent Julius Saitoti; DAR clients will be assisted by Ashura Mkogorosa.


                                                           Travel Agent
You will be competing with all other tourist and hunting clients entering the country of Tanzania between the dates of 1 July to 31
December. Please make reservations as far in advance as possible to ensure that your arrival and departure flights coincide with
your contracted safari dates. Also, if you are bringing your own firearms, remind your travel agent to certify that the airline of
choice allows firearms and/or ammunition aboard their flights.
We recommend Falcon Travel Inc. for all your flight reservations and travel information needs. A Personal Profile form is
included in the document section of this packet. You may fill out this form and return by fax, or contact Stacey Gibson with
Falcon Travel: Phone-210-492-6933/ Fax-210-493-1217 / or Email- sggibson@earthlink.net

                                                     VISAS & PASSPORTS
A Tourist VISA is required for entry into Tanzania. Fill out the attached VISA form located in the document section of this packet
or obtain these prior to departure from your nearest Tanzanian High Commission. They are usually issued within 24 hours and
require 2 passport photos and a cash payment. Visitors may also obtain VISAS upon arrival at any point of entry in Tanzania by
presenting a completed application form, passport, and cash payment, but it is highly advisable to secure VISAS before
commencing journey whenever possible.
When completing the VISA form, please put as your reference/contact in Tanzania, “Tanzania Wildlife Company Ltd. P.O. Box
1144/ Plot 604, Kiranyi , Arusha, Tanzania.” Contact Phone: +255 753 453 417
Please note that your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from date of entry into Tanzania. If your passport is near
expiration, apply for renewal immediately and choose the “Expedited Service” option for quick turn-around. For more information
about obtaining or renewing your US Passport visit: http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html. Another option is VIP
Passports & Visa Services, a private company used by many past clients: www.VIPpassports.com.

                                          Medical Emergency Evacuation Coverage
Your safety while on safari is our primary concern. As part of your safari price, we offer a complimentary “short-term”
membership for the duration of your safari with the emergency medical evacuation company, GLOBAL RESCUE LLC.
This membership includes medical evacuation straight from the outfitter’s bush camps to the nearest major medical facility such
as those in Nairobi, Kenya, Arusha or Dar es Salaam.
If you are already a Global Rescue member, we will inform Global Rescue of your upcoming safari with Tanzania Wildlife
Company, and ensure that your coverage extends the length of your safari.
Security Evacuation Membership option: Global Rescue members can upgrade their standard medical membership to include
evacuations for security emergencies. If an official of the traveler’s home or host country declares the member should leave the
area, or there is a threat of imminent grievous bodily harm, evacuations are provided at no cost to these members. Tanzania
Adventures Inc. receives discount membership programs from Global Rescue. We will gladly pass along our discount program to
you if you wish to upgrade your membership to include security options, travel/trip insurance, family insurance, or extended
stay programs.
Please review the GLOBAL RESCUE literature included in this packet and inform us if you wish to add services to your current
membership. Again, for those who are not currently covered by a medical evacuation program, we provide you and all members of
your safari with a complimentary membership which covers you for the duration of your safari. For additional information, please
visit www.GlobalRescue.com

                                         Travelling with Firearms and Ammunition
You must notify the airlines in advance that you will have firearms and/or ammunition in your possession. Confirm their policies
and regulations on travelling with firearms.
Note the following for Commercial and International Airline Regulation:
 -    All firearms must be unloaded, bolt removed and stored in the gun case.
 -    Pack ammunition separate from firearms. Currently most airlines allow a maximum of 5kgs (approx. 11 lbs) of combined
      weight for ammunition per person and the ammunition case.

The outfitter’s office of Tanzania Wildlife Company Ltd. will arrange for all the firearm import documentation prior to your
arrival. Therefore, it is essential for you to ensure that the correct serial numbers are provided with the General Questionnaire
Form in the document section of this packet.

                            Transit through the Netherlands with Firearms and Ammunition
If your flight itinerary includes a stop in Amsterdam (AMS) or other city in the Netherlands, it is mandatory to file a consent
application form for each transit through the Netherlands if you are carrying rifles/weapons and ammunition.
If you are traveling round-trip you will need to complete 2 forms – one for the way over and one for the way back (reverse the
information for the return trip). Please see the consent form application and sample in the document section of this packet. Your
travel agent will be able to assist you in this process. Please check with your agent for any changes or updates to this form.
Complete and sign two application forms and fax them to the Central Customs Office in Netherlands together with copy of
your information page of passport (ensure that this is readable) as well as a completed and authorized US Customs Form 4457
(or other document proving ownership of firearms). US Customs form 4457 is submitted in lieu of a firearm license. If you do not
have this form, you will need to include a letter from your local Sheriff or police authority confirming that you are the legal owner
of the firearms. We have included a copy of US Customs Form 4457 in the document section of this packet

                                 FAX # FOR AMS Central Customs Office: 011-31-50-523-2183.
                                PHONE# FOR AMS Central Customs Office: 011-31-50-523-2600

Depending on your travel date, an authorized consent form will be faxed back to you. Without this authorized form, you will not
be able to take your firearms on the plane. Please allow ample time for processing your application. Make sure your fax number is
legible on the form.
                                                              Climate
Being so close to the equator, temperatures in Tanzania are fairly constant throughout the year, differentiating between wet and
dry season. The wet season consists of 2 rainy seasons: Long rains will occur from late March until June and the Short rain takes
place through November.

Temperatures for July and August are generally lower than other months. Mornings and evenings may be chilly so light fleece or
sweaters are appropriate. Clients hunting in Lake Natron should note that due to the high altitude, nights are very cold and a
thick sweater or fleece is advisable. Afternoon temperatures in late August through November in all areas, especially Rungwa and
the Selous camps, can be quite warm. Lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and trousers are advisable for protection from the sun and
tsetse flies as well as in the evenings to lessen the chance of being bitten by mosquitoes.

                                                            Time Zone
                                        GMT plus 3 hours (2 hours daylight savings time)
                                    US EST plus 8 hours (7 hours during daylight savings time)

                                                             Currency
Tanzania’s currency is Tanzanian shillings. There are no currency exchange controls in Tanzania. US dollars (cash or travellers
checks) are preferred, but other foreign currency is also accepted.




                                                          Health Factors
Travelling to Africa, especially Tanzania requires a visit to your local travel clinic, personal physician or public health facility to
find out what immunizations are required and suggested for your planned trip. Please bring adequate medical supplies of your
own medicines. First Aid kits are carried in the safari vehicle and each camp is equipped with a comprehensive first aid box.

Yellow Fever Vaccination: All Travellers coming into Tanzania must carry a valid Yellow Fever vaccination certificate. You
might be asked to show the certificate at your arrival. The Yellow Fever vaccine is for your own protection.

Typhoid & Hepatitis vaccinations: Preventative measures for these illnesses are highly recommended for any foreign travel,
especially travel to or within any countries in Africa.
Malaria: Malaria is endemic throughout our areas. There are a number of prophylactics available. Be sure to obtain one from your
physician.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a very informative website: wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/destinationTanzania.aspx or
contact them at 1-877-394-8447.

Vaccines On the Go: www.vaccinesonthego.com is a company that will travel to the clients home to administer the vaccines
and has been used by our owner Mr. Jack Brittingham.
                                                                Voltage
Most of Africa is on 220 – 240 Volt alternating current. In Tanzania the plug points are three-pin square sockets as used in
Britain. We have electrical strips in the hunting camps and tents for both European 220V and US 110V standards, but we advise
bringing an international / universal plug adapter for use of your devices at other facilities. Power in all the hunting camps is
provided by generators.
                                                           Communication
All of our camps and vehicles are equipped with satellite phones for emergency use. We recommend you bring your own satellite
phone (rent/purchase) for personal use. Limited internet access via satellite is available in most of the camps. Use of the phone
and internet service incurs charges by the minute or Kb/Mb and will be billed to your account at the end of your safari. You
should not rely on this service to conduct business while on safari.

                                                          Shooting Practice
It is essential to practice before coming on safari. Know your rifle or bow and your personal limitations.
Distance: Dangerous game is seldom hunted at distances further than 50 yards but practice up to 100 yards is recommended. On
the open plains of Maasailand shots up to 200 yards can sometimes be expected. Archery hunters: every effort will be made to get
you within your comfortable bow range. Please inform your guide of these distances when you arrive.

                                                          Trophy Handling
The outfitter, Tanzania Wildlife Company, is responsible for the field preparation, dipping and packing of your trophies. After
the completion of your hunt all the necessary Tanzanian Government documentation will be obtained and this documentation
will accompany your trophies once the trophies are ready for export. As per standard, the responsibility of trophies will not be in
our hands once the trophies are shipped. Any shipping cost is the responsibility of the client. Cost for trophy shipments arriving
into the USA will be billed to the client by your Customs Broker/Clearing Agent following clearance through US Customs or
delivery to your taxidermist. To ensure that your trophies arrive in a timely fashion and to the address requested, please complete
in entirety the Taxidermist & Customs Broker section of your questionnaire.

Please bring taxidermy shipping tags with you on safari and present them to your camp manager on arrival. Shipping tags are
available through your taxidermist. The tags/labels are used by the outfitter to identify your individual trophies during the
preparation and shipping process

Taxidermy: shipping your trophies from Tanzania to the US or Europe for taxidermy work is highly recommended because
shipping to any other African countries might cause delays in delivery. For US clients we recommend the expert services of the
following taxidermist:
The Wildlife Gallery by Brad Eldred, Blanchard, Michigan. Phone: (989) 561-5369. Website: www.thewildlifegallery.com .
Customs Broker/Clearinghouse: many of our clients have utilized the customs brokerage service of Coppersmith Inc. for
accepting and clearing trophy shipments from Tanzania. Coppersmith Inc. can be reached at 1-888-827-4388, or
www.coppersmith.com . You will need to complete their forms before trophies are exported from Tanzania.

                                                  Trophy Fees & Safari Invoices
Full payment of the remaining balance is due 90 days prior to the commencement of your safari. As part of your pre-safari invoice,
a deposit towards estimated trophy fees has already been included in your invoice. This year we are offering clients the
opportunity to apply a portion of their total trophy fees (part 2 on your Trophy Fee list) as a tax-deductible contribution to our
conservation organization in Tanzania, Tembo Foundation (see below). The Tanzanian Government License Fee (part 1 of trophy
fee list) is due to the government within 30 days of the end of your safari. For this reason we request that any total license fees in
excess of your initial deposit be paid directly to the Outfitter, Tanzania Wildlife Company Ltd, prior to departure from Tanzania.
We strongly recommend that review the list of animals available for your safari and total up the cost of all government license fees
(part 1) so that you have a general idea of how much additional cash you must bring for these fees. You may also deposit more into
your “safari account” by sending an extra amount of funds up front to the TAI office in Texas. We will hold these funds until
billed by TWC. This prevents you from carrying excess amounts of cash in addition to that which you are already planning to
bring for tips.
Any miscellaneous charges incurred during your safari - including company gun rental, hotels, satellite email or phone use, etc -
will be billed to you by TAI within 45 days of your return home. We do not accept credit cards; payment is by wire funds transfer
or in the form of personal check or money order. In the case of a credit balance you will be refunded. Trophies will not be released
for export until your account with TAI is paid in full.

                                             Tembo Foundation Limited (TFL)
The Tembo Foundation Ltd. (TFL) is a non-profit charitable organization recognized by the government of Tanzania, and was
established primarily to achieve the goals of wildlife and habitat preservation in Tanzania. As a hunting client, you contribute to
the efforts of TFL through a surcharge or “anti-poaching & conservation fee,” which is part of the TOTAL TROPHY FEE for
animals hunted during your safari. Your contribution is tax-deductible (US Citizens). Instructions for payment of the Tembo
Foundation portion of your trophy fees will be given to you post-safari. These funds help finance year-round anti-poaching
operations and various community development projects aimed at facilitating the self-development and education of communities
to promote long-term sustainable conservation and the protection of Tanzania’s wildlife, and ultimately hunting itself. Additional
funding for the ongoing efforts of TFL is in the form of donations from clients and outside organizations around the globe. To
learn more about TFL and donate further to their ongoing conservation efforts visit www.tembofoundation.org.

                                                         Tips/Gratuities
Gratuities for professional hunters (PH), professional guides and camp staff in Tanzania are not required but always welcomed
and appreciated and in most cases serve as an important supplemental income source. Gratuities for professional hunters can be
handled directly between you and your professional hunter or guide. Typical gratuities/tips are 15-20% of your Daily Rates (see
Safari Invoice), split between PH and camp staff at your discretion. Cash is the preferred form of tip; local banks impose a
surcharge to cash Traveler’s Checks. A “Tipping Guidelines” worksheet is included in this Safari Planner packet; this document
details the number of staff in each camp and provides examples of gratuities left by previous clients. A copy of this informative
handout will also be available to you in camp.

                                      WHAT TO BRING – PACKING LIST
To assist in planning your safari we have prepared a suggested packing list. Please see this as a guideline only and remember that
Military-style camouflage is not allowed in Tanzania.
     Hat or cap (large brimmed is the best for the African sun)
     Lightweight cotton trousers (Zip off pants are the best for hot days)
     Bush Jacket or lightweight Windbreaker
     Lightweight cotton shirts (1 long, 2 short-sleeved).
     Comfortable walking boots, thorn proof but lightweight, ankle height normally the best
     Ankle gaiters (one set per hunter is provided by TAI, or order more at www.boytharness.com )
     Knee-high gaiters (Natron leopard & buffalo hunters) – highly recommended for those who will be hunting the nettle-

     Comfortable shoes for the evening
     Sweater or fleece for early mornings and evenings
     Socks and underwear

*For those clients hunting in our Rungwa and Selous blocks, it is recommended to bring bug repellent. A variety of products that
contain DEET will work against mosquitoes, and several previous clients have found relief from both mosquitoes and Tsetse flies
by using the AVON™ brand product “Skin So Soft,” and ULTRATHON™ insect repellents. These products will NOT prevent
malaria.
                                                       Documents to pack
It is advisable to have certified copies of all your documentation. One copy should remain at home where it is safe yet accessible if
needed (i.e. Lawyer or family friend), the second copy can travel with you – separate from your other documentation – should you
encounter theft or loss of documentation. Please pack all original documentation, medications, and personal belongings such as
cameras and optics in your carry-on luggage. You should request to have Airport Security officials either lock (please purchase
airline/security approved locks) or zip-tie your checked luggage at your departure airport. All gun cases must be locked following
inspection at airport security.

                                                              Luggage
               ** Please pack light; we have daily laundry service in camp. Space on the charter planes is limited.
                                Soft-sided duffle bags are preferred to the normal hard suitcases. **
Due to the remoteness of the areas, transfers between the areas and the major cities are done by private air charters organized by
the Outfitter, TWC. Perishable supplies for each safari will also be transferred with the air charters. Due to this, there is a
baggage limit allowed on the charter planes. The maximum allowable weight per client is 300lbs or 135 kilograms (includes
client, firearms and baggage). Please adhere to this baggage weight policy. If you bring excess baggage, there are two options: (1)
you will be asked to leave excess baggage at the outfitter’s headquarters, or (2) if you require all of your baggage, an additional
plane will have to be chartered at your expense in order to deliver your bags to camp. TWC has to reserve these planes well in
advance in order to have them available for the day of your charter. If you feel you will be bringing extreme amounts of gear, please
inform us immediately so that we may reserve your second charter or upgrade the size of your aircraft. Keep in mind, you will not
be “roughing it” in these camps. Three changes of clothing are more than enough for the duration of your safari as laundry is done
on a daily basis. For those of you going on photographic safari either before or after, the same rule applies. Daily laundry service is
also available in the photographic camps, so please pack as light as possible.

                                               Photographic & Video Equipment
Bring equipment that you know and are comfortable using. Be sure to test and know how to use all the equipment at home prior
to departure. We recommend bringing a small digital or film camera for hunting days, one that is easy to pack and carry in the
daypacks. Should you wish to bring another camera (preferably a SLR, film or digital) we suggest one with a zoom lens capability
of 80–300mm.
Buy (or borrow) as many digital memory cards as you can. You may want to use multiple smaller memory cards to minimize the
risk of losing dozens of images. And, as always, bring extra batteries. We strongly recommend that you bring sufficient film
and/or video tapes for the duration of your trip. Film choice is personal preference; just remember slow film for fast lenses.
Otherwise any ASA 200- 400 will suffice.
Because of the dust, you should keep all electronic equipment protected in Ziploc-type bags or any other protective bag while on
safari. Travel with all your photographic equipment as hand luggage in a good quality soft sided case.

We recommend completing a US Customs Form 4457 to register personal items such as photographic and video equipment, as
well optics (binoculars).
                                                 OTHER IMPORTANT LINKS:
                                           We recommend that all clients obtain some form of
                                trip insurance for any of their travels or hunting trips around the world.

US CUSTOMS FORM 4457
           AMS/NETHERLANDS TRANSIT FIREARM PERMIT APPLICATION FORM
                                INSTRUCTIONS



Dear Hunter,

Please see the following copy of the “Consent” form required by Dutch Customs for all passengers transiting
through the Netherlands with firearms.

This consent form is most definitely required and has been confirmed by both the Royal Netherlands
Embassy in Washington, DC and by Customs Head Office in Groningen in the Netherlands.

If you are traveling round-trip you will need to complete 2 forms – one for the way over and one for the way
back. See attached a sample copy of a completed form.

In order to process the application you will need to do the following:

Complete and sign two application forms and fax together with copy of your information page of passport
(ensure that this is readable) as well as Customs Form 4457 (or other document proving ownership of
firearms) to the Central Customs Office in Groningen.

Fax number                  011 31 50 5232183
Telephone number            011 31 50 5232600

Depending on your travel date, an authorized consent form will be faxed back to you or sent via postal mail.
Without this authorized form, you will not be able to take your firearms on the plane. If faxed to them
the original form will be sent to the airport customs office.

The Embassy has advised that a faxed copy will be sent to you within a week’s time. Make sure your fax
number is legible on the form.

Please work with your travel agent to ensure proper completion of the form if you have any questions, or
contact TAI office for further assistance.
