I finally wired my deposit to Warrior Trails, the safari company I’ve enlisted. I was pretty nervous to wire money. My only experience with wire transfers to Africa involved badly worded emails from a Nigerian prince. I never had the guts to take him up on his offer to hide $4,256,781 in my account. Nonetheless, wiring money to Africa is apparently a necessity since many small African companies don’t deal with credit cards. I wired 30% to them. I guess when I get to Arusha we will find out if I got ripped of – haha (biting nails). Seriously though, I’ve read lots of great reviews and Cathy, the rep in Canada, has been so kind and very quick to respond to emails ( I guess the Nigerian prince would have too though…yikes).
Has anyone else ever wired something to another country? Did you end up bankrupt and penniless? lol
