When traveling to South Africa, traveler’s checks are the safest form of currency just make sure that they are in South African Rand and not in U.S. dollars. To protect yourself from lost or stolen money, don’t countersign all of your traveler’s checks and write down the serial numbers in advance. Keep this sheet of paper in a safe place so that you’ll have it in case of an emergency.
You’ll find plenty of places to purchase camera or camcorder equipment throughout South Africa and southern Africa, but it’s always better to be prepared before hand.
