The South African Rand
The South African Rand Reviews
Spring break 2002 Mar 07, 2009
When I toured South Africa in 2002 with Don, we had to exchange our Ugandan shillings into Rands. We did this from Uganda because it was much cheaper buying the rand than the US dollars and then changing dollars into rands.
Initially I wanted to have the money changed in Cape Town, but I found out while I was there that it was cheaper to exchange it prior to travel. But then this is based on being in Uganda, it would be easier for someone carrying dollars to exchange it while in South Africa. My girlfriend Linda was not so lucky when she did.
I would advise you check on exchange options prior to travelling.
