Cape Town is the most popular city in South Africa, although crime stats show that the city has the highest recorded rates of murder, robbery and non-violent property-related crimes in the country. There are a few crimes that visitors need to be aware of before starting their trip: Petty Theft.

A city of natural beauty with the ocean and mountains on your doorstep which allows an outdoor lifestyle. A fusion of diverse cultures. The cost of restaurants and services is generally low. However there is a large gap between rich and poor. Many workers struggle to earn a comfortable living as the purchasing power of the rand is weak.

It is a beautiful city but it is not equally safe in all parts. Tourists that are not used to looking out for muggers and pickpockets should keep their phones in their pockets. Don't walk alone at night in the city, it is always safer to be in groups!
