I have had several dreams of traveling to Africa so I started watching Africa travel videos. How likely is to get murdered/robbed as a pale-skinned latino in Africa? I have been considering countries like Equatorial Guinea or Tanzania.
Also, is it easier to get a gf as a tourist in Africa?
You're not gonna get robbed. Contrary to the propaganda you'll hear in the west, crime is generally pretty low in Africa (I mean, except South Africa and not including military war crimes). As far as getting a gf, it *might* be easier but a lot of countries in southern/central Africa are somewhat conservative by western standards so they might expect you to put a ring on it soon depending on the country
>crime is generally pretty low in Africa
You've got to be kidding.
Crime against TOURISTS is incredibly low. Literally nobody will fuck with you. Tourists are so easy to swindle, it's not worth getting your kneecaps broken by the cops for pickpocketing.
Do you really trust African authorities in their ability to maintain accurate statistics about crime levels?
Stfu. I lived in kenya for 3 years. It's not fucking safe. Everybody lives behind barbed wire, electrified if they can afford it, and multiple layers of locks, bars, and heavy doors. Why do you think that is, you fucking moron? Crime, violent crime, is incredibly common to the point where locals reinforce their homes like fortresses to disuade home invasion robberies.
This was KENYA, the safest fucking place on the continent, almost.
he's one of those dumbfucks who thinks that reported crime rate is actual crime rate
in reality crime is so common in africa that it is simply not reported in any capacity, and police are not interested in hearing about anything short of a murder or severe beating, unless they get paid to care about it
Botswana is possibly the safest African country. I never had any issues there.
I'm glad for you, but the general security of any location in africa can be deduced by what steps the africans living in the location have to do to feel safe enough to sleep at night.
There's no way Kenya is the safest country in Africa... least prone to having a revolution or something in the next year maybe, but its got a pretty high rate of robbery and petty crime. Generally the less urbanized a place is the less crime there is. Botswana is really rural.
You might get robbed, I know plenty of people that have been robbed in African countries. Friends were ATM kidnapped in Dar Es Salaam.
Ultimately don't do things like walk in areas were no one is around, don't stay out late at night, don't drink like you would at home, don't walk far distances in cities. Avoiding these things will minimize your chances of being robbed. That said, being robbed is no big deal, don't carry your phone wallet and a lot of cash, and just give up what you have if confronted. The worst robbery btw is having your hotel room ransacked, I've felt more violated that way.
Provide if you are being mugged by Africans show them your dick. They will think you are crazy or cursed and leave you alone.
>show your dick
Uh. no. Too many witchdoctors will want to chop it off and use in voodoo magic
Go to east Africa and you will get a gf easy , they will unironically just think you are white like a Spaniard of something
Stop thinking Africa is full of American morons. That is your problem. It's much safer in Africa despite the poverty precisely because the mutt influence didn't turn their country into a shithole (Europe did though). Now things are unironically looking up for the continent. Strangely enough, it's thanks to China. Africa sorely needs infrastructure and you see them building shit everywhere. Now that doesn't mean the people and things are perfect (they are absolutely fucking terrible at managing money) but it's much better than you expect. Go now before normies discover it and (like all things), ruin it (like SEA).
>Also, is it easier to get a gf as a tourist in Africa?
As long as you're white
A general rule of thumb is that for third world shitholes, if you look different people will generally leave you alone so long as you're minimally equipped. Don't go walking around with blatant equipment or backpacks, so basically just a crumply/dirty t-shirt (don't bother cleaning any sweat you get on it, that's a good look) and cheap pants. There are some exceptions but it's hard to pinpoint. For example Mexico outside of Mexico City is more dangerous than mainstream African countries in regard to mugging. A Hispanic will literally just walk up to you and demand anything you're holding. Other places like South Africa are indeed unstable and anything can happen. People don't really traditionally share this information so it comes down to iykyk
By look different I mean racially
>Don't go walking around with blatant equipment or backpacks,
So how do you move your stuff?
You hire a local porter of course. When I am in india I pay a small local man to follow me around carrying my vulgar items such as cash and cheroots.
I had friends in Gabon that had a Equatorial Guinean maid who spoke fluent Spanish. There's nothing worth visiting in the country though, unless you like trees. The island part is supposedly a very strange place due to its location in the Atlantic. Lots of mist. Hardly a good place for tourism.
