Driver’s license: You may use a valid driver’s license issued in your own country as long as it has a photograph, the signature of the holder and is in English. Alternatively, you may carry an official translation of your license or obtain an international driving license before you leave home. You should always have your driver’s license with you when you are driving as you will be asked to produce it if you are pulled over for any reason.

TIPS AND TIPPING
As a rough guide: give 10% to 20% to a waiter in a restaurant.
Most of South Africa is malaria-free, although precaution should be taken when visiting the Kruger National Park or low-lying parts of northern KwaZulu-Natal.
Use common sense and take basic safety precautions. Keep valuables locked away and don’t wear expensive watches or jewellery, flash expensive cameras, or walk in deserted areas. Keep car doors and windows locked at all times. If in doubt, ask a guide or at your accommodation for safety guidelines
