General Etiquette

Somebody, especially a tourist, lacking knowledge about African cultures, customs, expectations may be considered rude. Questioning somebody's ethnic identity is also something you have to be a bit careful with. It is polite to tip 10-15% in restaurants or bars, but before that, it is better to check the bill, as sometimes restaurants include the same amount in bills. Petrol station attendants, car guards or parking attendants are usually tipped a few rand, usually R2 - R5. Tour guides and coach drivers are tipped after the end of the journey. It is customary to tip R3.00 per bag to the porter in hotels. However, at some places, the hotels itself might charge the amount in the bill as service charge.
