Africa Cries


Getting started...What does this country look like? Where is it? Who discovered it? Who governs it? What are the people like? What culture do they embrace? This is Mauritius in a nutshell.


Look, see and decide trip…or pure internet research? Whichever 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 the day you step onto the plane to start your new life.


Find the answers to your ’Where do I find...?’ or ’What do I do if…?’ worries. This is the crash course section on who, what, where and why.


Now it's time to relax! Meet people, join a sports club or a book club, indulge in some pampering at a spa, or sign your kids up for horse riding lessons...it's all here.
