Lifestyle

Situated at the southern tip of Africa, between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, South Africa is an ethnically, culturally and linguistically diverse country that also offers a amazing and varied landscapes. There are eleven official languages recognised in the South Africa constitution, including Afrikaans, English, Sotho and Swazi.

South Africa is also characterised by a high level of ethnic diversity. Almost 80% of the country is of African ancestry, from different ethnic groups, and South Africa also contains the largest European and Asian communities on the continent. The general quality of life in South Africa is not as high as in Europe or the USA; crime is high in certain areas and education standards can be poor in certain schools. There are fully developed areas such as Cape Town or Durban, and a good quality of life is certainly attainable.

The amazing diversity of South African culture, wildlife and the scenery - ranging from deserts to lush forests, along with relatively low living costs make it a very attractive destination. There is tremendous potential for future growth, and if you are planning to settle down permanently you can certainly enjoy a great lifestyle.
