South Africa Expat Guide
Embark on South Africa Expats Life
From the Cape of Good Hope to the wilderness trails of Kruger National park, South Africa has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the sizable expat South Africa community is mainly attracted by its economic opportunities, e.g. in the mining sector, and the urban development in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Expat living in South Africa surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
The Network for like-minded Expatriates in South Africa
In our social network, you can easily get in touch with other expatriates living in South Africa in a private and protected environment where trust, confidence and friendly ‘netiquette’ are essentials.

Moreover, you’ll also meet your fellow expatriates in South Africa in real life at our top-quality InterNations Get-Togethers – the best way for casual socializing in the capital city and other places like Durban or Johannesburg for all members of the South Africa expat community.
