5 Reasons to Move to South Africa:

Scenery – South Africa is home to deserts, mountains, plateaus, wetlands, and subtropical forests; from the Blyde River Canyon to the Tugela Falls, there’s never a shortage of spectacular views to get out and explore.

Earning Potential – With one of the most stable economies in the world, it’s incredible to note that South Africa is also host to substantial opportunities for growth and development while offering one of the largest earning potentials in the world to managers.

Weather – With winter lasting only 2 months from May to July, you won’t have to endure 15°C days for very long. Summer usually brings with it temperatures between 20°C and 30°C, with the major variances being between the east and west coasts.

Cuisine – One of the cheapest countries in the world in which to dine; you won’t break the bank or require a special occasion to enjoy a full course of lavish meals and drinks here!

Innovation – The science and technology sectors have been performing spectacular feats for many years in South Africa, with inventions such as the CAT scan and open heart surgery among them.
