Power Adaptors in Africa


#1

Hi there,
Was wondering if Admin or other travelers could tell me what type of power adapotors are used in:
South Africa,
Namibia,
Botswana,
Zimbabewe,
Egypt.

Specifically; do they use the Type M adaptor (BS546 (South African 15 A/250 V)) or do they use Type D (BS 546 (5 A/250 V earthed)) in the southern countries, and the standard euro Type C adaptor in EGypt?

Any help would be much appreciated
Cheers

The sockets in south Africa is huge, so dont carry adapter with you. buy an adapter here which is not costly and throw it when you are done.
