Me and partner (both in our 50s) were intending to spend 2 weeks doing Cape Town - Route 62 - Garden Route starting mid-March. Now my partner is getting worried about the safety angle, so I'd be grateful for any input. Although we'll be driving from place to place we want to spend most of our hols hiking together (without a guide) in the various wildernesses/hiking trails/beaches. Can someone give us an idea of how safe this might be in terms of crime? Places we were going to go: De Hoop Nature Reserve, Storms River Mouth, Plett and Victoria bay and Bontebok National Park. We were also going to spending time at Addo and Amakhala game reserves. Obviously you can't go walking around there by yourself in case a lion grabs you, but are there hikes outside the parks? Thanks for any tips.
