Travelling in South Africa - Tipping

We have many years of experience and with consultants who have lived in the country for over a decade, we guarantee that we will be able to assist you with any queries you may have for your holiday there.

Tipping

Tipping is very much the done thing in South Africa, and never an embarrassment for the recipient. 

In restaurants, look to give 10%-15% to waiters, while luxury hotel porters usually expect a tip of R10–R20 per service.  For airport porters the going rate is R5–10 per item of luggage.  On safari, we recommend tipping R160 (about £7) per day to your safari guide and/or ranger. 

Look to tip car valets, petrol attendants and newspaper vendors a few rand each per service.
