I'm travelling to South Africa for two weeks in March, I've been told by my friends out there that I would be better to change my GPB to Rands when I get out there as the exchange rate will be better and I just wanted to ask for some more opinions. I have seen that the exhange rate here in the UK has gone from about 11.5 rands to the pound to 10.7 in the past few days and just want to be sure that I'm best off waiting till I'm out there to exchange or to do it here tomorrow in case the rate falls further?
Just to tell you a bit about my trip I'll be flying into Johannesburg, then going to Sandton for a couple of nights, then we will be heading up to Nelspruit and staying in a retreat for 4 days, then hopefully going to Sun City for a night and the Kruger National Park for a couple of nights having a safari there.
I am SO SO excited to be visiting South Africa and cant believe I'm really going!!
