Out and about

The prosperous northern suburbs are safe areas filled with shops and restaurants, markedly Sandton which has several shopping malls, and Rosebank with unique shops and a daily African Craft Market.

Infamous for being a dangerous city, it is safe for visitors sticking to the tourist spots and avoiding dangerous areas. Do not leave bags or valuables visible in a car, and keep the doors locked, even while driving.
