Cape Town -safety

Jump to last reply

I am visiting CT in July with my 15 year old daughter. I realize that there is a concern about crime in Cape Town and will definitely take necessary precautions (no jewellery, staying in after dark etc.). However, I just read a forum whereby several tourists explained their terrible experiences with violence and theft in CT and I'm now a little freaked out.

1. Should I not carry a camera at all--even during the day and high traffic busy areas?

2. We are staying at 'An African Villa' and coming in on a pre arranged their hotel transfer- but at 10pm. Can you give me tips about what to be aware of so I don't fall into problems or dangers please. I'm now quite nervous about this portion of the trip.

3. After CT we are doing safari at high end private reserves: Kwandwe Private Game Reserve and Klaserie Sands River Camp. Do I need to be concerned of my belongings and personal safety here as well?

I am a seasoned traveller and don't normally feel apprehensive about unfamiliar places but reading posts on the internet has gotten the better of me. Advice and information would be appreciated.

Thanks.
