Is South Africa safe?
South Africa is a developing country, and as such is generally not as safe as the West or other developed nations. There is a huge economic disparity in South African society, combined with a largely undertrained and understaffed police force. This results in high crime rates and social unrest.
Even though the fight against crime has improved over the last few years, you still need to be careful and aware at all times. Go With Khaya will help you to plan your journey to minimise your chances of becoming a victim of crime. So keep calm and come to South Africa! We will make sure you are picked up and guided upon your arrival, get a proper introduction and all the advice you might need for travel, accommodation and sightseeing.
You may have seen footage of rioting and looting in downtown Johannesburg or other large cities in the media. This is NOT representative of the whole of South Africa. Go With Khaya works with volunteer projects in either rural settings or in city areas that are much safer than Johannesburg.
The FIFA World Cup 2010 showed the world that the picture the media shows is very different to reality. Most of the country is peaceful and friendly. Have further questions about South Africa? Read our Frequently Asked Questions.
