Mauritius is Africa's safest tourist destination, according to global index

Mauritius is the safest tourist destination in Africa, according to the Global Peace Index 2022, but also the 28th-safest country in the world.

The Global Peace Index (GPI) is an annual report that measures and ranks the peacefulness of 163 countries to determine the world’s most peaceful countries.

The GPI is published annually by the Institute for Economics and Peace, which measures 23 indicators of peace, which are grouped into three categories: Ongoing International and Domestic Conflict, Societal Safety and Security, and Militarization.

Example indicators include the number and duration of internal conflicts, relationships with neighboring countries, political instability, the level of violent crimes, and the level of perceived criminality in society.

Mauritius was reported to have a very low crime rate overall and what little crime does occur tends to be non-violent, such as petty theft.

Top 10 Safest Countries in Africa (2022 GDI):

  1. Mauritius — 1.54
  2. Ghana — 1.72
  3. Botswana — 1.75
  4. Sierra Leone — 1.81
  5. Gambia — 1.85
  6. Senegal — 1.86
