Safety at night, Cape Town: 14 reviews and 3 photos

 
 

It is always good to be on the alert here in Cape Town... (don't know whether to believe the <b>reports stating that there are rapes being committed every 26 seconds here in South Africa</b>!).

However, one Friday night (after a night of partying and club-hopping), my group of friends decided to walk back to our hotel at the V&A Waterfront. We couldn't have gone far when a group of blacks started walking towards us in such a manner that it terrified the wits out of me! Our group suddenly started to scatter... and it was then that I noticed one black guy was heading towards me with this menacing look on his face! Without a moment's hesitation, I stood right in the middle of road and stopped a cab... jumped right in... and left my group of friends who were still arguing over some insignificant issue - I believe they were still debating whether or not to hail a cab to the hotel! One of my girlfriends was smart enough to come along with me.

<i>Phew</i>!! That was certainly a close shave...
