Sadly, there is nowhere in the world that is crime free, so when in South Africa be careful of your belongings. Only carry enough money to do you for the day and keep it somewhere safe on your person as there are pickpockets everywhere. Never walk alone at night in unpopulated dark areas. Tipping in restaurants and bars is between 10-15 percent but never feel obliged to leave a tip if the service was a disaster.
