Cape Town is a modern, cosmopolitan South African city. As such, we advise visitors to exercise the same level of vigilance they would exercise when visiting any major city in the world.

This includes ensuring you follow basic safety tips such as keeping emergency numbers on hand, being aware of your surroundings and not carrying large amounts of cash or valuables with you. For most, a visit to Cape Town and the Western Cape is a positive, unforgettable experience.

Cape Town is a relatively safe city, but as with any major urban centre, there are areas that are best avoided. If you are unfamiliar with the city, it is best to stick to the well-lit and busy areas.

The World Travel and Tourism Council has also awarded Cape Town the Safe Travels stamp, for its adherence to internationally recognized Covid-19 protocols.

The destination is frequently cited amongst the world’s top holiday destinations, with a high return visitor rate, proving that those who visit our Cape Town once, fall in love, and want to discover and experience it repeatedly.
