Cape Town is a great city for journey women, in fact it is a very girl-friendly place.
It’s perfectly acceptable for women to go around on their own, so don’t be daunted and follow our tips…
For professional Women, Globetrotters, Lone Travellers or Mothers with children, Cape Town has lots to offer.
Safety is the first thing many visitors ask about. Our reputation for crime in Cape Town is mostly undeserved, as we have worked hard at improving it. And on our tours, we promise to take good care of you.
In Cape Town we refer to these white straw flowers as Cape Snow
Some safety tips for Woman Visitors to the Cape:
Stay in a Guest House or Bed and Breakfast as they tend to be more personal and your hosts will be concerned about your welfare and give good advice.
Always ask for local advice, especially when going out at night.
Book a tour guide, they have local knowledge and will really look after you.
For a mountain walk or anywhere off the beaten track, it’s best to book a guide, so you don’t get lost.
Be street smart like the locals. Don’t walk around flaunting paraphernalia like fancy cameras and flashy jewellery.
