My husband and I will be visiting Cape Town for the first time in the later part of February 2010. Have read in tour books and on the internet alot of concerns about safety for tourist. All recommend that you stay in good areas for visitors but none seem to spell out which neighbourhoods. For instance, is it okay to stay in the City Bowl area, waterfront, etc. etc.????
We are seniors (age 70 and 66) and want to feel comfortable walking around at night as well as the day. Plan to get most meals in restaurants and do not want to have to take a car everywhere. Ideal for us is to stay central so that we can easily get to most tourist sites, museumns without having to take a car. We would really appreciate any input your have. We are thinking of a self catering 1 bedroom apartment.
Thanks in advance.
