Holidaymakers have been urged to ensure they have an appropriate level of travel insurance, including adequate cover for theft during a trip
Two male UK tourists in South Africa have become victims of a robbery, which saw them lose money and personal possessions totalling more than £6,550, police said.
According to the Eastern Cape police, robbers entered the bed and breakfast chalet of the two tourists at the Addo Elephant National Park and threatened them with a crowbar and rock on Monday morning.
The robbers then ransacked the chalet and took items including money, clothing and mobile phones, the police added.
Lieutenant-Colonel Priscilla Naidu told the South African Press Association that two men, both 23, were later arrested in connection with the incident - which highlights the need for an appropriate level of
travel insurance, including adequate cover for theft of personal possessions and money during a holiday.
The two men are due to appear at Addo Magistrates' Court.
Both the tourists are believed to have returned to the UK.
