Safety and Security

South Africa’s Cape Town is one of the largest cities in the world. And while the city does have industrialized areas and modern services, the country itself has significant pockets of poverty. Below are a handful of tips on how to stay safe while in Cape Town:

  • Play it safe when using an ATM and use them only inside respected stores or banks.
  • Purse snatching is a common crime within Cape Town. Wear over the shoulder bags or try to not carry one at all. This includes backpacks.
  • Travel in groups and stick to well-lit areas when walking around at night.
  • Avoid Long Street as it is known to be unsafe.
  • Avoid wearing flashy expensive jewelry, watches, or clothing.
  • Public Transportation is generally safe, however note that taking a marked cab at night is the best option.
  • There are ongoing tensions between Uber and metered taxis. Please use caution when using either service.
  • Due to thefts at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, you should vacuum-wrap luggage where local regulations permit. Keep all valuables in your carry-on luggage.
