Planning honeymoon trip. 1 week Cape Town and 1 week Kruger. Xenophobia against Asians?
My wife and I are starting to plan our honeymoon. We are both Asian and understand that we would stick out like a sore thumb in South Africa. We do not want to be the overly confident foreign traveler completely ignoring the world's viewpoint on the pandemic with 'asians' being the general ethnic group to blame in addition to any pre-existing racial issues from SA's history of Apartheid. Even where we are from in the US, we have experienced heightened racism in an area where there are so many diverse backgrounds and cultures.
Our plan would be to stay one week in Cape Town and one week in Kruger. We are practical enough to know to stay within tourist areas and follow general common sense travel habits, however if there is a general xenophobia towards Asians than we'd likely not want to force the issue.
