Hi All... I know this topic has been discussed in the past however, if possible could some of the more knowledgable members of the forum clarify as to how to best approach this subject.
My wife and I will be doing a two week safari in mid-Sept. We will be visiting the usual tourist areas i.e. Mara, Samburu,Aberdares, Lake Nakuru, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire etc. after which we will be spending a week around Laikipia.
On past trips to India and China we have taken pens, pencils etc. with us. On one trip my wife packed a number of soccer balls and small pumps which she gave to local schools and orphanages.
My question is: what advice can anyone give as to what to bring with us? Pens and pencils are easy to carry however, our experience has been that giving them to individuals often creates problems. Given our itinerary do you believe we will be in a position to visit schools/orphanages/organizations where we can donate items that will benefit everyone. Is there a better method of contributing that someone can suggest?
My apologies for the "wordiness" of this post. Thank you for your responses.
