I would assume it would be a little unkosher to have any undeclared cash even if you plan to use it all ?I am actually going in July, do you still have to declare it if you plan on spending it ?
Are you taking that much because you plan to pay for your safari in cash? Tips are pretty well known in advance and I wouldn’t declare normal amounts. There are a lot of variables in the final hunt cost. In this case, I’d declare it on arrival if you are paying for safari in case you leave with a large amount. You also need to declare with us customs when leaving USA with more than $10,000.Good point I plan on taking more then $10k and really do not feel comfortable letting anyone know I am carrying that much cash. Something I will bring up with my PH.
I pretty much do the same; and ya‘ that’ll bother folks on forums, oh well.Yes, I plan on paying for the safari in cash.
Zimbabwe has a USD shortage, especially smaller bills. You need to bring the money over. There won’t be an ATM with the amount of USD available for normal tips.Personally, I would never take that much cash anywhere. Just wire your outfitter the money. For tip money head to an ATM they dispense USD.
