Packing List

1. APPLIANCES & GADGETS

South African electricity current is 220/240 V AC.

Most USA equipment requires a 110 V AC current.

We therefore recommend the following solutions to prevent disappointment:

  • If your equipment (camera, hairdryer, laptop, etc.) requires 110 V only, you must bring along your own step-down Power convertor (220 to 110 V).   It should be available from your local electricity store. 
  • If your equipment is capable to handle both currents (110 and 220 V), then you don`t need to be concerned.  We do have the necessary addaptors available in camp, to make your item compliant to our wall plugs.

       The electrical current information, appears on the backside of all Electrical equipment, Phone and Notebook chargers.
