"Be cautious in..." South Africa Warnings Or Dangers Tip by donovanel

South Africa Warnings and Dangers: 148 reviews and 93 photos

Be cautious in JOHANNESBURG--it is supposedly the most crime-ridden city in the world. Don't want to scare you, but seems like everyone I met who lived there either had been mugged, held at gun point or knew someone who had and there were also stories of people being killed and/or raped in broad daylight in their neighborhoods! Carjackings are also apparently very common--street vendors walk along busy streets lifting the door handles of cars while they are at red lights so make sure you lock your doors--I did experience this and it is a little freaky.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
