Tipping

Any advice please on what to tip (waiters, guides, taxis etc)

Does the tipping convention vary from one part of the country to another. Currently in Cape Town

Hello, 10% is the normal rate, for bar waiters, restaurants (only rarely is the tip added to the bill). If in a hotel, the porters get minimum R10 but if a few bags, R5 per bag.
