Is there any street crime in Botswana?

Answer ( 1 )


    Botswana is one of the safest countries in Africa and travelers might only encounter petty crime.

    Most tourism in Botswana is centered around Gaborone, Francistown and the tourist capital, Maun. The good news is Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta, doesn’t experience high levels of crime.

    As you would in any country, keep your valuables secure and only take out with you what you need for the day.

    Visitors should use care when talking on a cell phone while walking. Pickpockets can frequent crowded spots and transport hubs so secure your valuables.

    Occasionally, travelers have been robbed in the areas of Gaborone Dam and Kgale Hill in the capital, Gaborone. It’s advised to exercise caution in these areas particular between dusk and dawn.

    Always be aware of your surroundings and who is around you. Avoid walking around alone at night or in poorly lit areas. Instead, take a taxi to get around at night
