11. Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town is the second-most populous city in South Africa, after Johannesburg, and the provincial capital and primate city of the Western Cape. Cape Town is not only the most popular international tourist destination in South Africa, but Africa as a whole. This is due to its good climate, natural setting, and well-developed infrastructure. The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, most notably Table Mountain, which forms a large part of the Table Mountain National Park and is the back end of the City Bowl.
However, the high rate of crime in South Africa is a major concern for tourists as it is for expatriates moving to or living in Cape Town. South Africa is known to have one of the highest crime rate per 100,000 residents in the world regarding assault, rape and murder. Also, poverty combined with social unrest gives us the perfect combination for high crime rate. This sounds in fact very intimidating, however we think that if you are prepared to investigate where to move to, where to live and which areas to avoid, you will minimize the risk of becoming a victim of crime significantly. It would be a pity to avoid this beautiful place full of natural beauty and resorts, but be advised to always be careful and not travel alone.
