Strong Dollar Makes S. Africa Travel 30% Off
Save on S. African Safaris with a strong U.S. Dollar
We consider it one of our missions to provide our readers and clients with valuable information when it comes to travel. And one of the areas we constantly keep our eyes on has to do with international currency exchanges.
You see, international currencies are constantly in flux with one another, and many times this presents significant savings for in-the-know travelers.
If you take a peek at the currency chart above, you’ll notice that the South African Rand has taken quite a drop in the last two years against a strong U.S. Dollar.
Travel to South Africa hasn’t been this affordable in a long, long time!
In today’s dollars, this means a 30% savings for Americans traveling to South Africa from the levels found just two years ago. When we noticed this, we called our S. African travel partners and she said “Absolutely, the exchange rate is favourable to you guys at the moment. Southern Africa (and especially South Africa) is a very good buy for anyone wanting to travel at the moment.”
When I looked at the 5-year chart of the Rand vs Dollar, the savings is over 50%! Bottom line? Travel to South Africa hasn’t been this affordable in a long, long time!
For first-time travelers to Africa, South Africa presents one of the best destinations. There you’ll find the vibrant city of Capetown with world-renowned sites and restaurants, big savings on diamonds, an internationally acclaimed wine-country just north of the city, and world-class safaris just a short jaunt to the east. Plus, if you’re a penguin lover, you’ll find African Penguins on the beaches south of Capetown.
