Subject: South Africa

My daughter will be traveling to South Africa as a Scholar Laureate of Medicine. She will be visiting the cities of Johannesburg, Durban, and Cape Town. I have preordered her $300 American Dollars worth of Rand, the South African currency. She will also be traveling with American Dollars, an ATM/Debit card, and a credit card that also has a pin for tapping into money. With all the talk about trouble getting money from ATM's, I am wondering if anyone can assure me or else warn me of problems in those cities of getting additional funds. I have printed out all the places in those cities where ATM's are located (very few).

Any advice, money or otherwise, about South Africa would be greatly appreciated.
