    Western society doesn't want American blacks coming to SA this is why they pushed negatively between blacks and African people crazy hnn, now us seeing how nice it is there we want to move are money and American resources.

    Well, each to his own. Jo'burg is not my kind of destination. If you live in any US city, Jo'burg is just another one which happens to be in SA. There are amazing places outside our cities, but I guess will not suit city folk. If it has to be a city, try Cape Town next…

    As an African American, I visited Joburg this past March, and had the time of my life. The people and the country stole my heart. I really wish they dispel this propaganda about South Africans don't like us and the crime rate is high. Hell the crime in the US is higher. Anyway, I'm looking forward to going back the first of the year and soon be relocating there. Thanks for sharing your experience and much blessings and Ubuntu!

    From what I have heard, the crime rate in Johannesburg is lower than the crime rate in 50 of the American major Cities. In particular the murder rate, but that doesn't mean that the Johannesburg crime rate is not high. My point is that if you can survive in 50 of the American major Cities, then you can survive in Johannesburg, because in Joburg the crime would be lower overall.

    I live in Jozi and have to say that this video is the best and most comprehensive I have seen as a guide to the city. The only comment I have to make is that the reviewer stayed at the Hilton, an American hotel chain. A Hilton is a Hilton in London, Paris, NYC, or anywhere else in the World. We have many 5* hotels and he would have got a more authentic experience had he stayed in a South African owned and run hotel.

    The Hilton hotel is 3/5 in my books in comparison to other five star hotels like the Sheraton in PTA and there are a number of bnb's that are finer than the hilton

    South Africans and black Americans only fight on Twitter/X to kill time, mate. None of that happens in real life and many US youtubers who've come here, like yourself, will attest to that.

    My wife and I were in America a few years ago. We connected so beautifully with African Americans, so many said they’d love to visit Africa and the connection is just so undeniable. We’re all brothers and sisters

    I live in Pretoria, the capital city, bro its way calmer than Joburg with much lesser crime than Cape Town and Joburg and Durban…PTA is relatively quiet but has all the amenities of those cities minus the beach…Make PTA your base operations next time you are here, we have a Air BnB, hit me up if you ever come to 012…

    Come on bro ,you dont have a moral ground to lecture about the safety of Joburg coming from the US. The US is infact much more violent than South Africa in many metrics. Just recently one lunatic randomly shot 20 people in the US. If you were from South East Asia id understand when you are wary about crime because their societies dont experience too much of it . Not with the US man chill and enjoy the South Africa

    Joburg crime is as bad as Chicago, Detroit or Memphis. Americans from those cities shouldn’t worry about crime in Joburg. Also, most of the crime happens in some townships and sketchy areas such as Hilbrow. Sandton and Rosebank are relatively safe at night if you’re not stupid.

    Welcome brother, but who are the people spreading rumours black Americans are not treated well by South Africans!

    It the US media

    Is it black Americans

    Or African immigrants in the US!

    Black Americans contribute positively to the South Africa tourism industry and economy just like other visitors from Europe and Asia!
