THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SOUTH AFRICA
Cameras and Film Be prepared to have plenty of film and batteries for your cameras. If you are using a digital camera be sure and have numerous memory cards. A simple back up camera is always a good idea. You will want to take a lot of pictures so the memories are recorded forever. At the end of our tour we would like everyone to share their pictures. Addresses will be made available to everyone so you can send copies of your pictures on CD’s for everyone to enjoy. Cell Phones and Telephones Your cell phone will probably not work in South Africa. It is best to check with your provider before you take it on this trip. Each hotel has telephones in your rooms which can be used to dial out of the country. When you arrive it is best to obtain a South African Calling Card for emergencies. These calling cards can be purchased at several different stores at throughout South Africa. Climates We will be traveling during the fall of the year for South Africa. Normally the weather is perfect for site seeing, golf and safaris. The weather in Cape Town will be very mild during the day and fairly cool in the evening. The same holds true throughout the Western Cape. As we head East towards Kruger National Park the weather will be a little warmer and a little more humid. Then as we head North to Zambia and Botswana the weather will get a little warmer yet both in the daytime and evenings. Clothing There are very few places in South Africa where formal clothing is required. The dress for our tour will be casual and the dress for golf will be country club attire. Shorts are fine and the men must wear collared shirts at all of the golf clubs. Depending on the weather you may want to bring some long pants and wind breakers. While we are on safari it will be cool in the mornings and in the late evening, so a light jacket would be a good idea. It also is a good idea to bring sneakers and two pairs of golf shoes, with extra shoe laces. All of the hotels have swimming pools so a swim suit is in order. You may want to
bring one nice dress up outfit just to have with you. However jackets, ties and formal attire will not be needed. As a suggestion it is a good idea to take clothes that you would consider giving away. This way as we progress thru South Africa the older clothing can be left behind. This is especially true if you have golf outfits that you don’t wear anymore. Housekeeping will really appreciate anything given to them. If you do decide to do this you must write a note in the bag of the clothing stating that you are giving it away and that your name and room number is clearly stated. This way the housekeeping staff won’t be suspected of stealing. Drinks In South Africa they have full international bars at all of the hotels, restaurants and golf courses. The water is safe to drink, but they also offer bottled water of many styles. Driving in South Africa There is no need to rent a car while visiting the country. However they do drive on the left hand side of the road, which takes some getting used to. So that is why we leave the driving to our Tour Guides. Electricity The electricity runs at 220 volts throughout the countries. You will probably want to pick up an adapter to convert anything you have to 110 volts. Most of the hotels will have hair dryers in the room; however it is always a good idea to bring your own. Please check with the specifics in your camera’s manual for charging the batteries. Most of the newer cameras will allow you to charge your camera’s batteries with 220 volts. Flights It is never too early to start confirming your flights to South Africa. Please allow at least 90 minutes prior to your departure for International Flights. Flight departures and arrivals can change by the airlines without notice. So it is always a good idea to double check your flight times at least 3 weeks before you leave for South Africa. It is also a good idea to check with your airline carrier on how much luggage you can bring and to let them know you will be bringing golf clubs on the trip. All flights inside South Africa have weight restrictions. The weight of your luggage will determine if there will be any additional fees incurred. The weight restrictions are always changing, so it is a good idea to check on these guidelines prior to departure. Food All I have to say on this is that it is EXCELLENT! Golf Conditions and Equipment Here are a few suggestions on what to bring:
a. Golf Clubs in a protected travel bag, one per golfer
b. Plenty of socks, wind breakers, rain gear and umbrella c. Tees, golf balls, gloves and towels d. Regular golf shoes are required, no sandal type golf shoes e. Soft cleats are required, plus bring extra shoe laces f. Sunscreen and hats
We will have golf carts at most of the golf courses; however in South Africa they are called Buggies. At most of the golf courses Caddies are available for hire. The normal cost is about 100 Rand per 18 holes, plus 15 Rand for lunch at the Half Way House. There will be a few courses at which Caddies are mandatory. With each of the golf courses I will be working with the Head Pro or Director of Golf to insure that our experience will be a memorable one. You will not need to check in at the Pro Shop for your tee time. However we want you to spend all the time you need at the Pro Shop shopping for clothes or souvenirs. Every golf course in South Africa has what are called Half Way Houses. This is where we will be stopping after 9 holes of play for food and drinks. Usually the stop is for about 15 minutes and then we will begin play on the back 9. If you have a physical condition which does not allow you to walk on the golf courses we need to know about it. Therefore we need to have a letter from your doctor stating your condition and the reason it would not be a good idea for you to walk. This letter needs to be on your doctor’s letterhead and sent to me at least 60 days prior to departure. I will fax it over to our tour operators in South Africa and they will forward it to the appropriate golf course. You will also need to bring with you the original document. This will allow you to have a golf cart (buggy) on the walking only golf courses. Weather – Generally the weather should be very good for our golfing experience. Below are some weather forecasts for each golf course we will be playing. The Lost City Golf Course - This course is located at the north of Johannesburg about 2 hours. So there may be a chance of showers in the morning, but dry during the day. There will be a little humidity as the day warms up which will make the air temperature seem warmer. The temperature should range from the mid 70’s to high 70’s. The Gary Player Country Club – This course is located near The Lost City Golf Course, so conditions will be similar. However because this golf course is at a little lower elevation if the wind comes up there won’t be much effect to play. The temperature should range near the high 70’s. Pearl Valley Signature Golf Estates – This course is inland so the Cape Town ocean breezes should not bother us. The temperature should range from the mid 70’s to the mid 80’s, with mild breezes. Arabella Golf Club – This course is also inland from the ocean, however a slight breeze usually comes up in the afternoon. This course is slightly elevated so it will have a variety of weather. The temperature should range from the low 70’s to the mid 70’s. Pezula Championship Golf Course – Bring your wind breakers for this course. It is right on the Indian Ocean high on the rolling hills. You will experience more wind on the back 9 than on the front. It might be a good idea to wear long pants as well. The temperature should range from the high 60’s to mid 70’s.
Simola Golf and Country Estates – This course is a little inland from the ocean however the afternoon breezes will come up cooling it down. The temperature should range from the mid 70’s to low 80’s. Oubaai Golf Course – You will need your wind breakers for this course as well. It also is on the Indian Ocean on fairly flat terrain. However it is elevated so the wind can blow at times. I would also suggest that you wear long pants on this day. The temperature should range from the high 60’s to mid 70’s. Montaqu Golf Club at Fancourt – This course will be very mild with some slight wind. There may be a chance of showers off and on. However perfect conditions for golf. The temperature should range from the high 70’s to the mid 80’s. The Links at Fancourt – This course is inland with mountains surrounding the entire valley. There may be a chance of showers. The wind is usually very slight and the overall conditions perfect. The temperature should range from the high 70’s to mid 80’s. Leopard Creek Golf Estate – This course is located at the lower end of Kruger national Park. We will get some mild breezes, maybe a little shower but overall great golf conditions. Depending on the weather there may be some slight humidity. The temperature should range from the mid 80’s to high 80’s. Proper golf attire is required at each golf course. The golf courses maintain a very professional atmosphere, so please respect their customs. The Pro Shops at each course will be fully stocked for your shopping pleasure. The distances are measured in Meters throughout South Africa on the golf courses. To convert to yards just take the distance in Meters times 10% and add that number to the Meter distance. Example: The distance to the “pin” is 150 Meters. Take 150 Meters times 10%, which equals 15. Now take 150 Meters plus 15 which equals 165 Yards. Health Issues Malaria exists throughout the year in the low altitudes of the Mpumalanga Province, which is Kruger National Park. However the time of year that we will be traveling the risk is much lower. Diphtheria, Hepatitis A & B, Malaria, Polio, TB, Tetanus and Typhoid shots are recommended in some circumstances. Please check with your doctor for further explanation and clarification. If you need more information please log on to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention at http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel. Hotel Check-in & Check out The rooms are all pre-paid however at each hotel you will check in and present a credit card for any additional purchases. At the end of our stay you will need to check out and settle any additional charges you may have on your account. Internet Accessibility Each of the hotels we are staying at will have some sort of access to the internet. Some hotels will not charge for this use and some will. However if you would like to bring your laptop, most hotels have wireless connections in the lobby areas. Remember bringing your laptop is just one more thing you have to keep track of, so give it some thought before you make this decision.
Jewelry You can bring simple and inexpensive jewelry with you. However it is a good idea to leave most of your jewelry at home. If you have rings, watches, bracelets or other pieces that you normally travel within, then by all means bring them. The majority of the tour is casual attire, so any sort of “dress up” event will be in the evenings. Language South Africa has 11 official Languages which include Afrikaans, English, German, Dutch, Xhosa, Zulu and Tswana. English is spoken throughout the country and every form of information is written in English. Laundry Laundry can be done at all of the hotels and guest houses. The cost will vary depending upon the area we are in. Load Sharing Load Sharing is a term used in South Africa for cutting off the power in certain areas. This usually happens in the early morning or evening hours. This is when the government actually turns off the power for about 2 hours. It is a good idea to carry with you two small flashlights with extra batteries. Also after you arrive at your room double check to make sure you have candles and matches. If there aren’t any in your room please check at the front desk for both. The hotel staff usually knows ahead of time when the load sharing will take place. Local Time GMT +2 hours Luggage Everyone is allowed 2 pieces of luggage each, which includes your golf clubs. You will also be allowed one personal carry on travel item on each airline carrier. On most airlines within the country your main suitcase can weigh no more than 45lbs. You golf bag can weigh no more than 34lbs. If the bags are over weight you will be charged accordingly, by the rates quoted at time of check in. Pack light! Meals Breakfast – All of the Breakfasts are included with the trip. However please provide a “tip” for your server at each meal. Tipping for breakfasts are not included in our tour, including the safari lodges. Lunch – We will have several Lunches as a group, “tipping” is included for each of these meals with a few exceptions. When we are at Lukimbi Safari Lodge the “tip” has not been included. Halfway House – These are all taken care of including a “tip”. However, if your server does an excellent job for you please leave something a little extra.
Dinner – We will have several Dinners as a group, “tipping” is included for each of these meals with a few exceptions. When we are at Lukimbi Safari Lodge the “tip” has not been included. Drinks for each meal – Drinks for each meal are the responsibility of each person and must be paid for separately at the end of the meal. However, unless they are alcoholic all drinks at breakfast are included with our tour. Medical Doctors Note In most cases we will be riding to play golf. However there are a few courses where golf carts are not allowed unless you have a Doctors Note stating your condition. This “note” must be on your doctor’s stationery and it must state your condition. This note must be sent to our office prior to departing for South Africa. Once we have received the “note” we will forward it to our contacts in South Africa. We will keep a copy on file for you throughout the trip; however you must bring the original with you. We will provide a sample of what the letter should look like. Medical Insurance & Emergency Air Evacuation Company

your choice. However they do not offer insurance coverage.

a number of differences by company. Some are quite expensive depending on the services desired.
Medical Prescriptions & Drugs It is always wise to consult your doctor with regard to any medications. However below are some suggestions that may help in case there is a need. Consult your doctor for the following immunizations – Tetanus Booster, Hepatitis A & B and malaria pills (most need to be done at least 4 to 6 weeks before leaving the USA) A list of things that are good to take along: Prescription
Malaria prevention pills – i.e., Malarone or Doxycycline

Anti-Diarrhea – Imodium A-D or Lomotil 4
Antibiotic ointment for cuts – i.e., Mupirocin Ointment USP 2%

Headaches – Any type of aspirin that your body can accept
Upset Stomach – i.e., Antacids, Pepcid Complete or any liquid product
Mosquito Repellent – i.e., Must contain at least 20% Deet
All drugs or prescriptions must remain in the original container at all times. For additional information on foreign travel please check the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website at http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel. Medical Services South Africa has terrific medical and hospital facilities. No matter where we geographically there will always be some sort of medical help available. Plus we will always be close by to a drug store for any type of purchase of over the counter drugs. Money The money used in South Africa is called the RAND or ZAR. It is the only currency used! U.S. Dollars are not accepted anywhere in the country. It is a good idea to bring with you at least 1500 Rand before leaving home. All major credit cards are accepted throughout the country. There are also ATM machines available throughout our tour. There are money exchange centers in Johannesburg and Cape Town. In Cape Town the money exchange centers are located at the Waterfront Mall. When traveling it is a good idea not to bring cash just American Express Travelers Checks. Postal Services Plan to bring with you a list of people that you would like to send a letter or post card to. Post cards can be purchased throughout South Africa and at The Waterfront Mall in Cape Town. Once you are ready to mail your item you can do so at the front desk of each hotel. They will add the cost of postage to your room charges. Plan to mail them early. Safes You will find a Safe in each room of the various hotels. It is a good idea to lock your valuables up at all times. South Africa is a very safe country and the hotels we are staying at pride themselves on their staff and security. However good judgment should be used at all times at all of our destinations. Shopping In Cape Town near the Mount Nelson Hotel is a shopping mall called The Waterfront. Here you will find shops, restaurants, banks and entertainment. There are shuttles that leave the hotel throughout the day and taxis are also an option. This will be the largest shopping facility on the entire trip. Each hotel we
stay at will have a gift shop and there might be shopping nearby. Depending on where we are, will depend on how much shopping time there will be. We will also stop from time to time at a store called Pick & Pay. This is a fully stocked grocery store with a wide variety of foods, drinks and snacks. Special Needs If you have anything that requires a “special need” while we are in South Africa please advise me prior to our departure. The staff’s at all of the properties will try to make our stay as comfortable as possible. However if you need something specific then we will need to make special arrangements prior to our arrival. Passports All visitors entering South Africa are required to have a valid Passport. Make sure your Passport has plenty of spaces left for stamping. Prescriptions It would be advisable to make sure all of your prescriptions have been taken care of in advance. It is also recommended that you bring enough that would last longer than the last day of the trip. It is also very important that all prescription medicine remain in its original container. Over the counter drugs can be purchased throughout South Africa. Temperatures The temperatures are all measured in Celsius. So I have given you a conversion chart as a guide. Fahrenheit /Celsius in degrees 50 10 55 13 60 16 65 19 70 22 75 24 80 27 85 30 90 33 Tipping Guide This Tipping Guide is based on the South Africa Currency which is the Rand Transfers/Drivers – 10 Rand per one destination, per person Porters/Bellman – 5 Rand per bag Room or Maid Service – 5 to 10 Rand per day, depending on the service Meals – 10% - 15% depending on the service Caddies – 100 Rand per 18 holes plus 15 Rand for lunch Outside Golf Staff – 10 Rand for golf bag handling, per bag
Tour Guides/Drivers – 50 Rand per day each, per person Rangers – 80 Rand per safari, per person Trackers – 70 Rand per safari, per person Safari Lodges – At the Safari Lodges most everything is inclusive except for “tipping”. There will be some excepts to what is included at the Game Lodge. We will clarify everything with you upon arrival. It is customary to “tip” at the end of your stay. You can do this when you check out. The best way is to list each service provider at the facility and the amount you would like to give. This amount can also be put on the credit card you have on file. Tipping for all of our group transfers, and group lunches or dinners has been provided for. Tipping is not included for our Tour Guides and driver. This will be done on an individual basis. There will be certain situations where each individual will be responsible for various gratuities. Please refer to the chart above under Tipping Guide. Transfers Our tour includes all transfers within South Africa. The transfers include all vehicles and airline travel within South Africa and other portions of this tour. Travel Vehicles Vehicles used for the major touring portion of our tour will be air conditioned buses. They will vary in size based on our tour for that day. While on safari we will be traveling in open aired Land Rover type of vehicles. Some may be covered and some may not, it will just depend upon the tour taken that day. Vitamins and Health Foods Allow enough of your daily supplements for at least 5 days after the tour has ended. Visas There may be some situations where we will have to pay a Visa Fee to enter a country. Visa fees will be the responsibility of each traveler. Visa Fee’s, if applicable will be posted prior to departure. However we reserve the right to make any announcement regarding Visa Fee’s at any time throughout the trip. Water The water is very safe to drink and can be used out of the “tap” in the hotels. However, you have 2 bottled water choices. The first is Sparkling Water, this is similar to club soda and it will have a little “fizz” to its taste. It also has quinine in it, which may cause some health issues. The second is Bottled Water; this is very safe and is provided at all of the hotels and restaurants.

Since this is a “group” tour and priced accordingly there will be no credit issued for any portion of the tour you do not participated in. Deviations to tour programs are subject to availability. If a change in your personal itinerary does occur a $200.00 service fee will be charged. This service fee is non-refundable and once the change has been made the entire amount is non-refundable. Golf Courses We are privileged guests at all of the golf courses. So country club rules apply. Each of the golf courses we will be playing is championship quality with a variety of tees to hit from. In most cases we will be playing the Men’s Regular Tees and the Ladies Forward Tees. All handicaps are welcome and there aren’t any restrictions on who can play. However it is very important to note that maintaining a quick pace of play is required. If your group falls behind you will be asked to skip various holes in order to stay up with the group ahead of you. All play is expected to be completed in 41/2 hours or less. So that the pace of play is maintained we will be implementing a “play one ball” rule according to the USGA Rules and the highest score allowed per hole is “double par”. They have very strict standards in this country. So as guests we will comply and your cooperation is appreciated.
