“I am relocating to South Africa but am unsure of where to move to, can anyone offer advice?” is a common query from people preparing to relocate within our several Facebook Groups. What always follows are a tonne of responses from expats recommending the precise location of where they currently reside, which is actually not surprising but does not help the person who is open to moving anywhere in a new nation.
Bloggers may write about the BEST 5 CITIES for Expats or the TOP 10 PLACES TO LIVE IN South Africa, but they do not truly understand what it is like to be an expat because only expats can write about what it is like to live abroad; the perspective that expats have while living in a new country differs greatly from that of someone who is taking a gap year and travelling to several cities quickly.
In order to provide those looking for an answer to the original question with a much more in-depth and meaningful article to read than a repackaged list of the top 5 places to live in South Africa or the best 10 beach resorts in South Africa, etc., we have come up with a simple solution: within our Facebook Groups (Link), we are inviting members who are writing in the groups to create a brief contribution to Expat life in their region.
You are invited to submit your experiences if you are an expat in South Africa using the submission form located in the main menu under the ARTICLES tab.
We hope you find this post useful and that it aids you in your transfer to South Africa. It will likely continue to grow over time, so it is worth bookmarking and returning to South Africa.
