Also, if you have a GMS enabled US cell phone, you may make international calls ONLY if you have the international calls feature turned on. In most cases, this requires a visit to your carrier’s store or a phone call to their customer service department. Once you have enabled international calling, you will be able to make calls in most areas of the country, depending on your carrier and the agreements they have in place with local carriers to provide service to their clients. (Cingular works well in camp) Another option would be a satellite phone. If you desire one of these services, please let us know. We can connect you with a company who can serve your needs in this area.
• You will need both a converter to plug your items into and an adapter to plug into the outlet. The converter will change the voltage from 230-240 Volts, 50 HZ to 120 Volts.  For our lady guests who need a hair dryer, we will have hair dryers in each chalet that are designed for South African electrical outlets. No need to bring along that big hair dryer.
• We accept US$ cash. You can also make special arrangements with us to pay the balance of your safari with a personal check if you have more than 50% of your safari paid in advance. Please bring US$ cash for tips to your guide and staff
• Tipping is never required but is greatly appreciated. Please use your own discretion according to the level of service that you were provided throughout your safari. Feel free to ask your outfitter if you have questions on tipping. They can give you great guidance in that area. We prefer that you bring US$ cash for tips.
