About South Africa
South Africa is a vibrant country full of amazing people and breathtaking scenery. It is known for its quality of life, wildlife, temperate climate and low cost of living and there is much cultural diversity here.
Many people are choosing to emigrate to South Africa to fill skill shortages in IT, engineering and medical positions, while at the same time benefitting from lower property prices and living costs, resulting in a steady stream of requests for removals to South Africa. Likewise, may South Africans are attracted to the UK for work and study, so we also cater for many people moving from South Africa to the UK.
Although eleven languages are spoken throughout the country, English is widely used, making it easy for English speakers to live and work here.
Cape Town is a busy, colourful and cosmopolitan city with a diverse range of attractions, sights and activities. The city has something for everyone, from the landmark beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay to the lively V&A Waterfront and the award winning wine lands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. The city is also famous for the awesome Table Mountain, shrouded in its fluffy white tablecloth. The views from the top are spectacular, where you get a bird’s eye view of the city in all directions.

Durban is a heady mix of design, art, music and food – peppered with cultural influences.

Dubbed the 'City of Gold' due to its gold mining past and also known as 'Jo burg', Johannesburg is a city of both considerable wealth and abject poverty. One of the largest cities in all of Africa and growing fast, it will soon rank amongst the top 10 largest cities in the world. Even now it is the world's biggest inland city. Modern South Africa's financial capital, its city centre is teeming with skyscrapers and huge shopping complexes but Johannesburg is rich in history too. From the discovery of gold to the period of apartheid, the museums of Johannesburg have a fascinating story to tell. Check out The Museum of Africa and the Johannesburg Art Gallery. The Gallery dates back around 100 years and contains a priceless collection of contemporary and impressionist masterpieces, together with works by leading South African artists.

South Africa’s second oldest city, Port Elizabeth or PE as it is known colloquially, is situated on the South Eastern Coast of South Africa. It has a growing economy and there’s a lot of new building taking place – and yet, it still has that friendly, small town feel to it. Port Elizabeth benefits from a moderate climate and some lovely beaches which have attained blue flag status. Boasting a major university (NMMU), good schools and great shopping, PE has a lot going for it.

Since the arrival of democracy, Pretoria has become increasingly cosmopolitan. It used to be staid, stuck in its boorish ways but things have changed; most Pretorians are not Afrikaans, but Pedi and Tswana, and the change of government has brought many more middle-class blacks into the area. The city no longer has an overwhelming Afrikaans community, nowadays there are thousands of students, a progressive art scene and a thriving gay and lesbian community. The nightlife here is energetic and fun and it is close enough to Johannesburg's airport to be practical for work and travel and yet feels safer and much less sprawling.

Soweto is the acronym used for that area of South Africa known as the South West Townships. The townships were created even before apartheid properly took hold in the country, to accommodate black mine and factory workers, outside of the city centre. Soweto today is vibrant and friendly. It’s a trend setter, not just in fashion but in politics, music, dance art and language and its many heritage sites and restaurants make it very popular with visitors and locals alike.
