They were on their way to a safari lodge when their car was stopped by gunmen. Shortly thereafter, the driver of the car was shot dead.

Mbombela – A German vacationer was shot dead in a robbery in South Africa. The man was on Monday afternoon with three other German tourists on the way to a safari lodge in the south of the well-known Kruger National Park, the police said.

The tourists were stopped by three armed perpetrators immediately in front of the park. When the tourists refused to get out of the car and locked the doors, a perpetrator opened fire on the driver of the car. He drove the car back about 100 meters and drove into a wall. The driver died at the scene of the crime. After the shots were fired, the perpetrators fled without taking anything.

South Africa, with its approximately 60 million inhabitants, is a popular tourist destination for Germans, precisely because of its many national parks. However, the country struggles with a high crime rate. The Federal Foreign Office warns about robberies when driving on the motorway in the urban area. The Ministry recommends not to resist robberies, as the perpetrators are usually armed. dpa
