Tipping in South Africa

Hobbert | Jul 3, 2013 05:49 AM

I have a horror of not tipping appropriately and just want to make sure I've got the right idea. My friend and I will be in Cape Town, South Africa for several days this fall and then on an all inclusive safari near Kruger. The guidebooks I have seem to indicate 10-15% is the usual tip in restaurants. Any exceptions to this? As for the safari, I've never been to any sort of all inclusive (not really my sort of thing usually)... do I tip anyone? I believe alcohol is not included. Do we tip on that? Thanks for the help!
