THE CURRENCY--when I went the exchange rate was 6 to 1, and now I think it is somewhere around 8 to 1 which is great if you are American because you can really enjoy yourself. Food and entertainment were quite inexpensive, however, clothing and such were comprable to what you would pay in the states. Tipping in South Africa is not as big a deal in restaurants as it is in the US, though these people work just as hard.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
