A German vacationer was shot dead during a raid 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 men.

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 also a popular tourist destination for Germans - mainly because of its many national parks.

However, the country struggles with a high crime rate.

The Foreign Office warns about raids in the urban area.

The Ministry recommends not to resist robberies, as the perpetrators are usually armed.
