Cape Town -  A swell of protest marches have been taking place across South Africa on Friday 7 April. A number of highways have been blockaded in protest, with the #SAUnite movements largely peaceful across the country. However, travellers are being advised to arrive as early as possible for check-in, if travelling by air.

Take a look at this map put together by a South African who works for a security company, but asked to remain anonymous.

He says he has attempted to plot and share all safety and security related info with regards to planned demonstrations and protests, but told Traveller24 the information is as "accurate as the situation allows".
