Utilities in South African Motorhomes

During your escorted tour of South Africa you will be using the power supplies in your motorhome; this guide will explain more about them.

Electrical hook-ups will be included in your tour price where they are available, as will your first fill of propane gas.


The electricity supply is 220-230 volts AC 50 HZ, with the exception of Pretoria (250V) and Port Elizabeth (200-250V). Most plugs are of the three round pins 15A type. Adaptors are best bought in advance of your trip.

Propane gas

Your motorhome heating and cooking facilities run off propane stored in a tank on the motorhome. You can fill up your propane tank at petrol stations (the attendants will fill it for you). A propane tank should never be more than three quarters full.
