    I wouldn't say "very" safe.

    I was there in Cape Town in Dec of 2007.

    It was a topic of discussion while I was there about how their infrastructure will hold up with the influx of people.

    Back on topic.
    I think you will be safe.
    It is always about being aware of what is going on and alert to your surroundings.
    We were there for a conference.
    I know of five accounts of people being mugged of their possessions.
    Nobody was physically hurt.
    A couple of those 5 were people that had their cards taken from them right at the ATM.
    They just didn't know how to react.

    Honestly, you can not trust anyone in Africa, as long as you keep that in mind you will be alright.
    I don't mean to be so cynical but to play it up as "safe" would not do you any good.

    You can have a really good time if you go.
    If you want to know some places that we visited let me know.

    Also, Jo'berg is one of the most dangerous cities in the world.
    I would prefer to go to the games that aren't in Jo'berg.

    I hope I didn't throw you off, the experience is a once in a life time thing.
    That to me outweighs the dangers.
    With so many people there, your chances of having a problem is less likely than when I was there.


    If you are going to go, I would make some plans right now.
    Like a visit to Kruger Park. That was awesome!
    It is about 3 hours from Jo'berg.
    It is like the wildlife version of Yellowstone.

    Some good looking groups there, Group C should see England and USA progress to the later stages.
    Difficult group to get out of? Group G with Brazil, Ivory Coast & Portugal. Only two from those three with N Korea going to play spoiler
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
