Is Cape Town a safe destination for tourists?
Question

I’m landing in Cape Town in a few weeks’ time, but I am worried about the high crime rate in South Africa. Is it the same in Cape Town? What can I do to stay safe?

Cape Town Tourism takes tourist safety seriously and has invested in significant security measures and pushed for a strong police presence in areas popular with tourists. This being said, most crime occurs in the townships, and going there alone is not recommended. However, should you wish to visit the township, it is advisable to travel with guides or local friends who are familiar with the region. Most crime occurs at night, so if you go out after dark, you may become a target for opportunistic criminals. As soon as you arrive in South Africa, download a taxi-hailing app like Uber or Bolt; they are handier and less expensive than taxis. Alternatively, you may rent a car for the length of your trip to South Africa. The Atlantic Seaboard is one of the safest locations to stay in Cape Town. Tourist-friendly districts in Camps Bay, Clifton, and Sea Point provide premium accommodation, and the vacation houses contain adequate safety elements to assure your safe stay in the Mother City.
