We are two American women planning on flying into Joahnnesburg. We are supposedto be picked up by a tour comapny and drivne to Sun City. From there wer pickedup and driven to Pilanesberg Park. From there driven to the airport in Johannesburg and fly to Cape Town. Again picked up and taken to our hotel. We are supposed to be in Cape Town around three ( 3 ) or four ( 4 ) days. Then picked up and driven to the airport.
But, I've had a few people tell me NOT to go without a tour group because it is not safe for us to do anything on our own. They said we shouldn't even walk around in Cape Town to go to eat or shop, etc., etc.
They suggested that we don't go at all.
Does anyone have opinions on this. They are frightening me ALOT. I don't want to be on a vacation where I have to look over my shoulder all day long.
