Currency question


What would be your advice. Travelling from the UK next month. Would it be best to take sterling, travellers cheques?

Kind regards,

I took no money in last time and paid with my card in restaurants, and withdrew R1000 at a time from ATMs

Could anyone advise whether there is an AmEx Agency at the OR Tambo Int'l Airport? I'd like to change some American Express traveller's cheques there when I arrive in Johannesburg in October. Many thanks!
