Family travel in SA
http://www.travelhows.com - An advice blog for aspiring travelers
An ideal family vacation to South Africa would include Cape Town (city) where you can swim with penguins, visit the aquarium, experience the townships, and ride a cable car to the top of Table Mountain. The Garden Route is filled with exceptional beaches, a monkey sanctuary, Cango caves, ostrich farms and much more.
There are rules of thumb you must follow everywhere in South Africa, every day, to protect yourself.
The murder rate for the whole country is quite high and most of the people who die are non-whites who are killed in their own all, black communities (townships). The western cape is among the safest regions in South Africa. But what one has to protect ones self in relatively safe areas are very low probability, random extreme acts of violence when you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Using personal security rules of thumb, and knowing what places are not safe, you can avoid all but the rarest tragedies.
Driving a rental car, especially long distances, in South Africa has its own special rules.
