Precautions for females travelling to Africa

The best precautions that a female traveler can take in Africa are to respect local clothing customs. While you may feel uncomfortable or 'not yourself' in clothing that is very modest, it will help dissuade unwanted male attention that is common in many African cities. You will also receive more respect from those around you for having made the effort to fit in with local clothing customs.

If you are unsure of the clothing customs in the area you will be visiting, consult a country-specific travel guide, the country's embassy, your tour operator, or you could even call the hotel you will be staying at to ask them.
