While part of me knows they're right to do so I still cant help wondering if their neighbours put them up to it.Wellington - New Zealand's foreign ministry stepped up warnings about travel to South Africa on Friday, saying crime was a serious issue with muggings and hijackings prevalent.
The ministry's travel advisory on its website said there was "some risk" in travelling to South Africa and advised visitors to be vigilant at all times, especially at bus stations and airports where organised gangs operated.
It specifically mentioned the key cities of Johannesburg, Durban and Pretoria.
It also warned of the danger of hiackings on roads leading to Kruger Park and said visitors should only go to Table Mountain in groups to minimise the risk of attack. - Sapa-dpa
