I need to travel to Tanzania and Nigeria to train local companies how to install and support the medical system.  

Work in these locales and schedules are impossible to accurately forecast, so I'm leaving margin for a trip of longer duration that I think "should" be needed.  This is a world where the unexpected is fairly common.

These funds will be used to purchase airline tickets with flexible itineraries, safe accommodations, meals, and unexpected incidentals (new computers, additional memory, etc).  These sorts of things ALWAYS happen.   

Risks and challenges

In Africa, it is always possible that plans don't work as expected. Often for reasons that Western minds simply can't understand or anticipate. To my Western mind there is little or no risk in this, but having worked in Haiti and Latin America, I know that is never absolutely true. I guess I could catch Ebola, lose my voice, or something way outside the norm.
