Full of gangsters and this place is very dangerous. I’ve had bad experiences and that’s why I’m moving out. It isn’t safe for women. Men here abuse women.

As much as it is on the outskirts of most popular places in our province, it is not as boring as everyone thinks it to be. One can describe our city as vibrant. Populated by individuals from different backgrounds. We all just gel well together and given that everyone is incredibly friendly and welcoming.

If a person moves to Krugersdorp, they would have to consider being a very safe and vigilant. Krugersdorp is not a very safe place and you would be more protected staying in a group of people. It is a very widely spread city, so it would be wise to purchase car.

Be security conscious and aware of their surroundings. Understand that the availability of public transport is restricted. The types of shops in the city do not cater for all needs, speciality stores are located some distance from the residential areas. There are a number of reputable schools in Krugersdorp.

There is load shedding a lot. There is a lot of crime as well such house robbery, hijacking of cars, pick pocketing and murdering of people. There are beautiful tourist attraction site to visit and learn a lot of South African history. There is wildlife where you see the big five animals.
