Don't you worry about getting shot!" 

As soon as you tell people you are moving to South Africa, the usual response isn't positive!

With no one to ask, its easy to start worrying and doubting your decision,

Are we making the right decision, can it really be that dangerous? 

Stop relying on Google and random people, who fill your head with horror stories.

Let us give you the information you need.

We can connect you with people who are choosing to extend their contracts. 

Families that feel safe, whose kids are jumping in and out of the swimming pool 101 times every day. 

Couples who are escaping to the bush for their weekend break, before heading to the coast to relax on their own private beach. 

Let us connect you with expats who have started their own company, reinvented their careers and taken the time to know who they are and what they want from their time overseas.  

The opportunities here are endless.

Allow us to help you discover them, but be warned you probably wont ever want to leave.

Translating - Hannah 


Moving to Johannesburg

I'm a British expat who relocated to South Africa in 2010. 

I didn't really know what to expect when agreeing to move here. Both my husband and I completely underestimated the impact the move would have on my career, my confidence and my identity.  

Yet, moving here was the best thing that could have happened. It has given me a new perspective of whats important and the chance to redesign my life without the cultural expectations and judgements from friends and family back at home.  

Now, each morning I work with wonderful expats to ensure they see and experience the best of South Africa.  Its my aim that when the time comes to leave, you know who you are, who you have helped, and have a bucket load of experiences and stories that will last a lifetime.
