"Learn some words" Tanzania Local Custom Tip by ycnan
Tanzania Local Customs: 54 reviews and 44 photos
The people of Tanzania are the warmest, most friendly people you will ever meet. I thought at first that it was an act for tourists, but they really are wonderful. They truly love to teach you words in Swahili and appreciate your using them.
Do not take photos of individuals without asking first. This has caused problems in the past. They may want a small gift or a small amount of money to have their photo taken. Sometimes this is not a good thing--some feel that taking photos of children teaches them to beg. They've been known to skip school to follow the tourists. It's ok to take photos of large groups.
