Tipping on Safari

Jump to last reply

I know it is customary to tip a number of people at the end of safari. I have read that that includes the guide, the tracker, the butler and the camp staff. I have read a variety of suggestions when it comes to the amount. The latest thing I read was $115 Rand per day per couple for the guide and $110 for the others. Can those of you that have gone recently tell me the current appropriate amount?

Also when taking a day tour given by the owner and sole employee of the tour company, is it necessary to tip as well?

Thanks!
