Like anywhere else in the world your safety is strongly dependent on you. One needs to take precautions wherever you are!
The vast majority of students and visitors complete their stay in South Africa without incident however students are encouraged to always be vigilant and aware that criminal activity can occur as in any other city of the world. It is not advised that students walk alone especially after dark. Students should make the necessary arrangements to ensure that their personal property is covered by insurance against theft as foreign visitors are targets for petty theft or muggings. Most accommodation providers do not cover any losses incurred by students due to theft. It is the student’s own responsibility.
