Johannesburg safety suggestions?

I and a few colleagues are travelling to the World Summit on Sustainable Development in late August/early September. Can anyone offer advice about
- our hotel area, Berea (or Hotel Crest, specifically)
- the level of risk in leaving semi-valuables like cameras in the hotel room?
- the safety of different types of public transportation?
- any other tips ?

Take the kind of precautions that you would for any foreign visit but keep in mind high unemployment rates lead to high crime rates. Keep valuables locked and obtain advice at the hotel reception with regard to transportation. It is a beautiful country to visit with great tourist infrastructure so be aware of your surroundings and you should have a fabulous journey.
