    I have not used them in Tanzania. Only in Kenya and they were fully professional. Others in this forum have used them more than once in Kenya and Uganda and also Tanzania.
    Hope this helps.

    Adrian,

    As far as I know independent camping in Luambe is no longer allowed. The nearest you can camp will be at Kanunshya CCs. (northern) or Kalovia Cs (southern border).
