View Full Version : South Africa Travel

I will be traveling to South Africa (Cape Town and Johannesburg) in the near future and am looking for advice from those who have been. I know the currency is Rand. When travelling I usually use my credit card exclusively; however, I've heard that Africa does not use credit cards much. They are basically a cash only. From your experience, is this true? If so, how much cash would I need to take? I will be in Cape Town for a week and in Johannesburg for a week going on safaris. My lodging, transportation, and most meals are taken care of.

I also welcome any other advice or info you can provide. Thanks so much!
