          Vuyani was superb in all respects. The twice daily animal drives could not have been more exciting. The drivers had at least 15 years' experience with game and the trackers never disappointed us. Unlike Kruger where everything comes packaged, Vuyani requires you to go off...More

          Other than clothing, tipping seems to be a very frequent question. What I cant seem to find is the preferred currency used for tipping. Since we are coming from the US we will have to get several types of currency, spending 12 hours in London and need to get some GDP as well as Rand. What would the staff prefer? Many thanks
