CASH, FOREX, CREDIT CARDS AND CHEQUES

CASH AND FOREIGN EXCHANGE RECOMMENDATIONS IN AFRICA
Please check the details on your itinerary and vouchers to see where your board is fully inclusive and where it is not. Where you are paying for your own lunch or dinner, allow between $10 to $25 per person. Personal expenditure, gratuities for driver/guides, airport taxes and visa fees are excluded from the cost of your tour. We suggest that you allow US$25 per day to cover the cost of personal expenses and souvenirs (within reason) etc.

With the exception of South Africa and Namibia, the preferred - and in some cases only - acceptable currency is the US Dollar. In South Africa and Namibia, US Dollar, Pound Sterling, Deutsche Mark, and South African Rand are accepted as cash. Therefore, any cash payments to camps for curios, or gratuities to guides or staff, need to be in one of these currencies.

Travellers' cheques in any currency are acceptable, while Visa and MasterCard are generally accepted throughout the region, but American Express and Diners Club are not. Usually only the large hotels and retail outlets will accept credit cards.

In Zimbabwe, Mastercard is no longer accepted, Cash is King and small denominations of US$ notes should be taken. Credit cards cannot be used to purchase fuel/petrol if one is self-driving.
