South Africa is a great country and, moreover, a SAFE COUNTRY. These people who say it isn't, have never been there.

I walked around Cape Town, Joberg, et al, alone, at all times of the day/night. I was NEVER approached or accosted.

Go, South Africa is magical...
We were aware of the high crime rates when we visited 10 years ago. Our solution was just to avoid the big cities and of course stay out of the former townships. Again, even then, no problems.

South Africa has a lot of beautiful places to visit like the mountains,safari parks, wonderful beaches etc.One of the greatest assets of South Africa is its 21 conservation areas or national parks. Here one can watch the wild life in its natural habitat freely.
