We're(all adults, 2 females, 1 male) are planning a trip to South Africa this coming September and thinking of just flying over there, rent a car and enjoy South Africa for 3 weeks. However, everyone that hears about (friends who have been there) our plan say that we'reall crazy because vacationing on your own in SA is just not done due of safety. Can someone out there pls tell me or better yet reassure me that this is not so, that it can be done safely on your own, . We know about the basic rules of travel (try to blend in, don't look like a rich tourist and act as if you know what you're doing even if you dont.) Would appreciate any comments re: above and thanks in advance.
