how much to tip the driver

We 4 people for 11-day safari. How much to pay the driver for tipping in total? USD/car/day.

Doff, this reminds me of something the infamous Mfuwe referred me to--a thread by an Englishman, critical of California tipping,

An American replied something like, "Well, you Brits can't even drive on the correct side of the road!"

We Yanks DO have a speech impediment, e.g. pronouncing the "R" at the end of words that have the letter--instead of ignoring it, as do you on the NE side of the pond.

I have not heard many British (What's with this "Brits" business?) drop the R of Driver and say ' tip the drive".

Up where Doff comes from they roll their Rs quite a lot but it does not effect they way they walk.

And without upsetting folks just after the 4th July I think some on the west side of the pond actually ADD an R even where it ain't written. As in "God Bless Americarrr!"

And they sure do remove it when referring to a part of their anatomy when the correct version is spelled AR$e!

JC rode the other version that won't get past the censor on here..

Have a nice day Y'all!
