A German vacationer was shot dead in a robbery in South Africa. The man was on Monday afternoon with three other German tourists on the way to a safari lodge in the south of the well-known Kruger National Park, the police said.
South Africa, with its approximately 60 million inhabitants, is a popular tourist destination for Germans, precisely because of its many national parks. However, the country struggles with a high crime rate. The Federal Foreign Office warns about robberies when driving on the motorway in the urban area. The Ministry recommends not to resist robberies, as the perpetrators are usually armed.
