"In Swahili culture, it isn?t..." Tanzania Local Custom Tip by Imbri

Tanzania Local Customs: 54 reviews and 44 photos

In Swahili culture, it isn?t rude to ask for something outright. It also isn?t rude to refuse a
person?s request. If someone asks you for money or your camera, they will do so without
embarassment; you should answer in the same way.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
