I'd value any advice on the above. we are staying for 3 nights in Jo'burg at the start of a trip and we decided to give Soweto a go. Have booked in to Flossies B and B which has a few nice reviews and we're guessing is in a relatively safe part of the township. However there are very few reviews and I guess just most people are scared of staying in a township. I'm getting a few wobbles as people keep giving me dire warnings of the high risk of getting mugged, assaulted, murdered etc. I take these with a pinch of salt but we are arriving at 10 pm to be met with the guesthouse's travel people. Any advice as to precautions, what sort of neighbourhood, Pimville is etc. I just like the idea of being near the heartthrob of the place and not cossetted away in some whites only gated hotel. But we are white and tourists so it will kind of stand out! Thanks for any feedback.
