Weather
Western Cape Province (Cape Town) has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and rainy winters, and very strong winds can occur. Note that, in general, the winter period is colder than might be expected in a country on the African continent.
Security
Although considered one of the most violent cities in South Africa, it is also the one with the highest number of tourists and the least frequent burglary (or other) in tourist areas. Remote areas and peripheral and / or more degraded neighborhoods should therefore be avoided. The city center / areas most sought after by tourists can be safely visited during the day, although walking at night should be avoided.

Avoid bringing large amounts of cash and personal effects of remarkable value. The traveler must keep identification documents, money and valuables in the safes of hotels or accommodation, even at their own risk, given that many of these devices have security vulnerabilities; and be careful not to display cameras and other public places on the streets and other public places, such as cell phones and jewelry. You should pay close attention to your belongings and never lose sight of them. You should leave your accommodation outside with the necessary cash and documentation. Photocopy all your documents and do not move with originals, except when indispensable.
 
Never walk alone or in isolated or poorly lit areas. Walking on public roads should be limited to overtly policed ​​areas.
