DEFINITION: Total recorded intentional homicides, completed. Crime statistics are often better indicators of prevalence of law enforcement and willingness to report crime, than actual prevalence. Per capita figures expressed per 1,000 population.

Yes it is a beautiful country geographically, yes in the good old days it made a really great holiday spot. BUT let’s not forget the most important thing here, it is NOT safe, whichever way you look at it ~ you ARE taking your life in your hands when coming to this country.
Since almost every single person in this country has in one way or another been directly affected by violent crime in South Africa, I would seriously caution any prospective visitors to this country to think twice before booking your tickets.  There is a lot of really good information based on TRUE statistics (the stats that the SA Tourism Board and SA Government don’t want the world to see) that would serve you well when making a decision to visit.
