An endless coastline, some of the world’s most impressive wildlife and dazzling scenery have lured many people to start a new life at the Southern point of Africa. It is a place where the sun is always shining, which means people live life mostly outdoors. They surf, swim, play sport, barbecue, trek and go on safaris.
Expats from all corners of the world are living a good South African life in one of the large cosmopolitan cities or in the beautiful smaller towns scattered through the country. South Africa is home to people from many different nationalities so blending in won’t be a challenge. South Africa has a collective culture with a large group focus, which can also be seen in work environments. Stable, personal relationships are valued and meetings tend to be informal, but make sure to be on time.
The South African economy is slowly growing and consumption and investment are on the rise. Working and living in SA could be one of the most enriching experiences in your life and with different sectors dealing with a shortage of skilled workers, now might be just the right time.
