This has been one of the most frequent queries as people naturally do not want to over-tip, but also do not want to insult staff by not tipping them a customary amount. we have created a resource that will help you find the tip amount that not only makes you feel comfortable, but also gives you peace of mind knowing you’re not shorting our hard working staff.
It is preferable for tips to be paid in Cash ($ or Rand), but you are also welcome to do the tips by credit card, keeping in mind that a 2.8% credit card fee will be charged.
Your Professional hunter would generally be tipped directly by you at the end of your safari. The rest of the staff which we have divided into categories, being Skinners and trackers, Chefs and Cleaning ladies can be tipped communally. We will provide you with a tipping sheet where you can specify and allocate the amounts you wish to tip.
Over the past year, a PH would generally be tipped an average of $150 per day and the rest of the staff $100 per day which will be divided between them. This of course is only an indication of the averages to give you an idea, but feel free to use your own discretion in this regard.
