I'm a fairly well seasoned traveler and I use normal levels of caution while traveling, etc. I will be heading to Cape Town with my girlfriend later this month. I've heard that cape town can be unsafe (as in some areas are safe, while others are not. Just like any other city). I've also heard that if you don't want it stolen, then don't bright it to SA. I'm thinking about the safety of my Girlfriend and myself, and our belongings - cameras, laptop, things that would disappear if there was a breakin at our hotel.
I am a first time traveler to SA and I am very excited about the trip. I am foremost wondering about safety in the area around our hotel (the Glenn Apartments). I know this is an upscale area. However, I haven't seem any recent posts about safety. So, how safe the camps bay area now (as in the last few months)?
If anyone has been to the Glenn recently, any assistance would be appreciated.
Most posts here leave me reassured that I wont have an issue with safety in Cape Town, provided I/we use common sense while traveling. I always do.
