I have read horrible things about the rising delinquency rate in South Africa in particular out in the country Farmers living in remote areas up country are increasingly becoming victims of armed assaults Is this really true ? How far is Capetown affected by violent crime ?

I agree with John. Lived here 13 years and have had no serious crime incident, A purse was stolen in a restaurant, and returned minus the cash. Once I parked in an isolated place in the city and had a camera stolen from the boot. At home in Somerset West I had a hosepipe stolen and a cheap plastic table taken from the yard. Perhaps I have been lucky, but I still really enjoy Cape Town.

There has always been crime in Cape Town. There has been an increase of violence on the farms, but nothing crazy. City life is still the same, you can walk around and if you don't look vulnerable the chances that you will get mugged are low. Just don't go asking for trouble.
