What currency must I bring?
Bring most of your spending money in cash as USD, Sterling or Euro. Generally, US dollars are the easiest to exchange. If your tour remains within Southern Africa – South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Swaziland, Lesotho, and Mozambique – you may opt to bring all your spending money in South African Rand and you can change the money before you leave your own country. If you carry US dollar bills in East Africa, please ensure they are clean, un-torn and issued post-2009. Anything else will incur a poor exchange rate or might be refused. Your guide can advise you where it is best to change money into the local currency on your tour and how much you are likely to require. Some tours may require you to have money already changed after arrival at the airport.
