A WORD OF CAUTION TO ALL TRAVELLERS TO SOUTH AFRICA
•South Africa is a crime ridden country and all travellers whether local or foreign, should be aware of this fact and take the necessary precautions at all times.
•Try to keep your luggage as inconspicuous as possible – expensive luggage and large quantities of luggage draws attention.
•If at all possible try to store your luggage – or expensive items – in a safe place – this may help overthrow a criminals’ plans.
•Try to take an unusual route home – i.e. not the obvious or easiest route, this may help avoid a hi-jack situation.
•If possible avoid going to your destination immediately, this will confuse the time line and expectations of anyone who may be intent on robbing you.
