Is It Safe? Robbed by Knife in Cape Town on Day 1

If you’re like most people, Africa in general is a pretty foreign land to you. And you might be thinking of visiting Cape Town in South Africa, but are concerned with whether it is safe, considering that a lot of folks have heard about the crime levels in the city.

We spent about a week and a half in Cape Town, and we can tell you that the tourist parts you plan to visit are indeed safe. We can also tell you, after talking with many locals, that the city bowl downtown area is not what we’d call “safe.”
