          We will be staying here in the next month. Please tell me if you have a hair dryer in the room. For my iPhone, camera, etc. do I just need an adapter or also a converter? Thank you!

          I believe that the room offered both South African plug outlets and UK ones. To be on the safe side, bring a travel adapter.
