Safety Tips when Travelling to South Africa
Safety Tips when Travelling to South Africa

When travelling to South Africa you are entering new surroundings with different people and a type of environment you are not familiar with. This can be daunting, whether you are with a group or alone. Some things should not be taken for granted, and your safety is one of them, so ensure you take as many precautions as possible.

When visiting in 2010 you are sure to be left with lasting memories, so here are some other tips and requirements to follow during your stay South Africa.

Safety – Common sense is important in any situation to help you make wise decisions. When in South Africa for the Soccer World Cup, it is important to make sure you’re going to areas that are recognised as safe and avoid wandering off alone.
Try not to have big amounts of cash on you, and wearing too much jewellery can attract unwanted attention. Finally ensure that your cell phone and wallet are kept out of sight. Don’t hitch-hike no matter how much of a good idea it seems at the time.

Weather – South Africa is warmer than most countries, so invest in an effective sunscreen, wide edged hat and sunglasses. Choose a sun-block that protects from both UVA & UVB rays, with a recommended SPF of 15. Be sure to cover all exposed skin so you don’t get burnt when trying to get a tan – sunburn is incredibly painful!

Sex – You need to be careful of who you indulge in sexual activity with because of the contraction of STDs or other infections. Remember to always practice safe sex and be responsible.

Immunisations – according to South African law, no vaccinations are required when visiting South Africa. However, visitors who are entering from a yellow fever zone must have a valid international yellow fever inoculation certificate.

Personal protection against malaria – you should try to wear long-sleeved tops as well as socks and shoes. Also remember to apply insect repellent to the body at night.

If you remember even just a few of these instructions on your visit to beautiful South Africa it will be sure to be an unforgettable experience!
