"Electrical adapters" Cape Town Packing List Tip by DesertRat

Cape Town What to Pack: 32 reviews and 17 photos

Miscellaneous: If you bring any electrical items with you, remember that South Africa, like the British, use a 240v system. However, the plugs are not the same. Instead of the big, rectangular pins in the British model, the South African variety is round, though about the same size. Fortunately, these adapters are available in most chemist shops (drug stores).
