Before leaving a restaurant or bar in South Africa, leave a tip with the person who attended to you. Tipping is an excellent way to show your appreciation for the services you received.

Blend in

Don’t do things that will make you stand out. Always try to blend in with the locals. While exploring, you don’t need to wear expensive clothes or gadget. All your valuables should be kept out of sight at all times. If you rented a car, ensure that it is locked at all time and remove your valuables from the seats and other visible areas.

Never touch or feed the animals

You are likely going to see some wonderful animal in some national parks in South Africa. That said, one thing you need to keep in mind is that most of the animals you are going to see are wild. So, touching them is not really a good idea. It is not wise to feed the wildlife because you might make them become dependent on human food. Also, the food you feed them with might affect them negatively.

The sun

Always wear a sunscreen and a hat when you are going out. The sun is very harsh in South Africa. Even the locals take measures to protect themselves from the blazing heat of the sun.
