safe areas for 60s couple accommodation

Hi my husband and I will be in Johannesburg for 4 nights in November 2013 and wondered what areas/suburbs we should look for accommodation in. We are looking at either B&B or maybe something with a microwave/stove for self catering. Any advice would be appreciated. Is the Moonflower Cottages in Victoria Park a safe area? Also if self catering would need to walk to get groceries. thanks

Rosebank, Parkview, Parktown North, Parkhurst are all "safe" areas.

I would say that, in general, taking the same precautions one would take in one's own city, Johannesburg is as safe as any big city anywhere.

I have no knowledge of a "Victoria Park" in Johannesburg. Perhaps you mean Victory Park?

Here's a selection of self catering option in the Rosebank area. safarinow.com/destinations/rosebank/self-cat… . You can use this site to look in other areas as well.

Rosebank is nice and central, with a good selection of shops and restaurants.
