‘who dares goes’

 

Unfortunately, there are many countries in the world which have headlines for all the wrong reasons.  Dangerous countries are on just about every continent on the planet and to be aware of the dangers is paramount if you intend to visit one.

 

Tell two different people what a dangerous country is and no doubt you will get 2 different answers.

 

One thing that is important to note is that almost every country in the world poses as some sort of a risk to a traveller.

 

The problem with dangerous countries, or destinations with risky areas, is that many different organisations will give differing views of what is considered hazardous to a traveller.  This is the general problem that a traveller faces.

 

Generally, most organisations, government offices, travel associations and guide books conclude that the following  issues and events that comprise a dangerous country include:

  • wars, or civil wars
  • military coups
  • major crime
  • terrorism
  • high level violence throughout country
  • banditry
  • car-jacking
  • political uprising
  • political unrest
  • civil unrest
  • violent protesting by the people
  • kidnapping

 

(THERE ARE AT LEAST A DOZEN COUNTRIES IN AFRICA, SO BE ESPECIALLY CAREFUL ON THIS CONTINENT, PARTICULARLY OVERLAND TRAVEL.)
