How much money do you need for 2 weeks in South Africa?


You can have a great time in South Africa on a tight budget, but if you want to enjoy all that the country has to offer, you should plan to spend at least $100 per day. This estimate includes accommodation, food, transportation, activities, and souvenirs.

If you’re traveling on a shoestring budget, you can still have a great time in South Africa. You can find affordable accommodation, food, and transportation options. However, you’ll need to budget at least $100 per day to enjoy all that the country has to offer. This estimate includes activities, souvenirs, and entrance fees to attractions.

If you want to experience all that South Africa has to offer, you’ll need to budget for activities like safari tours, wine tasting, and visits to national parks. You should also plan to spend money on souvenirs and gifts to bring home. Keep in mind that many attractions have entrance fees, so be sure to factor that into your budget.

With a little planning, you can have a great time in South Africa without breaking the bank. By following this budgeting advice, you can make the most of your trip and create lasting memories without spending a fortune.

Assuming you are staying in moderate accommodation, eating modestly and not doing any major tourist activities, you would need approximately $2,000 for 2 weeks in South Africa. This does not include flights or travel insurance.

If you are staying in more expensive accommodation or eating at nicer restaurants, your costs will obviously be higher. Similarly, if you plan on doing any major tourist activities such as safaris or wine tours, you will need to factor those costs in as well.

One way to save money while in South Africa is to take advantage of the many free attractions the country has to offer. These include hiking in the stunning Drakensberg mountains, visiting one of the many national parks or taking a stroll along one of the many beautiful beaches.
