i'm not going for a month, just about 2 weeks, i can't get away for a month at this time. I just started a new job.
I may try to get back to Tanganyika later with Dr. T, but i think Uruguay or Madagascar may be next for me.
who knows.

They have tanks and weights at the lake for rental, but i got to take my regulator and BCD.
I didn't want to take them, as I'm paranoid they will get lost in flight, i don't even want to take my Nikon DSL that's alot of money if they get "lost".

If you are planning to do a tour in the future, here is a general look at the cost.

Flight $2500.
I have been watching for 3 months out, and i have seen the range of $1800 to $5000.
so for me getting my ticket 2 weeks out, i'm cool with the price.
I'm coming from SFO, if you are coming from NY or Miami your price will be about $500 less.

Lodging $1500.
This includes meals and boat crew. We won't be staying all the time at the lodge, there are days when we will be away from the lodge and staying in tents around the lake.
No wiggle room on this price, unless you stay someplace else, in which case you would not be with our group.

Vaccines and anti malaria pills. $300.
depending on your insurance.

Incidentals. $500.

So you are looking at roughly $5000.
