Executive Protection <ul><li>There’s no doubt about it, South Africa is a dangerous place to live in or to travel around in. </li></ul><ul><li>Tour Operators, Travel agents and the South African Government in general will try to gloss over the crime situation in SA, as they need tourists to come visit South Africa as a major travel destination and as we prepare for the 2010 Soccer World Cup. </li></ul><ul><li>We have some of the world’s worst crime statistics, close to 20,000 murders and 50,000 rapes in South Africa yearly for 46 millions citizens.
