If you’re a world traveler who’s never considered a trip to lovely South Africa, then you need to widen your horizons (drastically). The beautiful land at the southern tip of Africa is something that you need to experience if you truly want to call yourself an accomplished explorer. The country might have undergone its share of upheaval, but that’s largely behind it now, and it’s becoming a truly welcoming place that’s great for travelers of every budget. Of course, before you book a flight to Cape Town, here are a few things you should keep in mind when traveling to South Africa.
1. Don’t Hesitate to Explore the Entire Area During the Day
While the sun is shining, there are few areas in the country that are well and truly dangerous, jut use your best judgement and you should be fine (don’t go walking down any blind alleys). Once the sun sets, however, things tend to get a little more sticky, so it’s best to keep to the tourist-friendly sections once the sun sets, especially in the city.
