Insider Advice & Travel Tips from Locals in South Africa

Photography
Always ask before taking someone’s photo, and be prepared to offer a tip if they let you, though your guide can help you to negotiate. Photography is banned at most airports, government buildings and military installations. Photographing soldiers, police and border officers is also prohibited.

Smoking
Smoking is prohibited in public spaces, but you’ll likely find a designated smoking area nearby.
