Tips and Advice on the UK from Your Fellow South African Expats

Obviously, expat life in the UK goes well beyond shipping your belongings and taking care of red tape. Socializing with fellow South Africans is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the British mentality and way of life. South Africans in the UK are a part of our community, calling cities such as Glasgow, Cardiff, London, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow South Africans in London, for example.

Wondering where to shop for South African delicatessen, want to discuss your national team's latest match, or simply talk to someone in your native language? Become a member of the British InterNations Community!

  • Our network is the best place to meet expats from South Africa.
  • On the the UK Expat Forums, you can get competent answers to all your expat-related questions: how to find a babysitter fluent in your mother tongue, where to get bobotie in London, etc.
  • The InterNations Places database for the UK has information on the nearest South African embassy and many other institutions.

From the outstanding beauty of the Cotswolds, "the Heart of England" to Scotland's mist-shrouded highlands, you can meet supportive and friendly South African expats in the UK on InterNations.

Additionally, InterNations hosts regular expat events and activities in the UK. Our get-togethers are sure to cater to your taste as well: as a member, you can partake in cozy gatherings to enjoy some British roast beef, join one of our huge expat celebrations with hundreds of participants in London’s best locations, and much more. Want to discover the UK? Go on a weekend trip with your fellow expats to see the royal fortress and St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh's Old Town and other beautiful landmarks.

Our meet-ups and activities offer many wonderful opportunities to mingle with expatriates hailing from South Africa and dozens of other countries in a casual setting.

    For me, the InterNations events are the best part. I attend almost every get-together and always get to know lots of friendly fellow expats.
