is loaded with ideas and information from expats who have already been
through the same experience as you. Most of all we just want you to
feel WELCOME and to know that you are not alone here!
We support the Africa Cries initiative

will go a long way. Be a part of the greater cause. EVERY CENT COUNTS!

way you prepare for the move, arm yourself with practical help on
finding accommodation, choosing a school, deciding whether or not
to move your pet, and completing your employment documentation.
Planning and packing. Work through our practical checklists of what
needs to be done from four months before your move, right up until

club, indulge in some pampering at a spa, or sign your kids up for
horse riding lessons...it's all here.
User driven information exchange
many facets of expatriate life that come as a total surprise. It is easy
for outsiders to get the wrong idea about expatriate life: a perception
that combines romanticism and leisure, adventure and pleasure, a better
life, a hope, a future. It is seen as a privileged lifestyle and envied
by those who stay behind. These qualities may, in some way or another, be
present in the expatriate lifestyle, but with them also come the sacrifices,
discipline, energy, focus, determination, self-discipline and connectedness
that enable you to keep yourself together. Share your thoughts ...
