Safety and Security Fact Sheet

As with all international cities in the world, crime in Cape Town is a reality and both residents and visitors alike should use common sense when out and about. Crime can happen anywhere but it generally takes place in crime hot spots, far from the orbit of visitors to the city. For Cape Town and South Africa, the safety of our visitors remains a top priority and tourism authorities meet regularly with public safety services and crime prevention agencies to ensure minimal risk and maximum protection for all visitors to Cape Town.
