Expert Tipping Advice
Wherever you may travel with us, we will always ensure that you get the very best of service; service that is most certainly worth a tip. We are often asked by our clients how much one should offer as a gratuity – for lodge and camp staff, for drivers, and for your expert guides.
It can be somewhat confusing, but is also something that one should plan for in advance.
