Living Expenses in South Africa

Daily life in South Africa is active and social with living expenses far below those of many European countries.

So what is it like to live in a country that is culturally, geographically and naturally so diverse? It’s likely you’ll find that living here will be very different from what you’re used to.

South Africa has variety. Our natural heritage contains incredible biodiversity in both flora and fauna. We have towering mountains, vast oceans, and beautiful seasons. Our cultural and historical heritage is equally varied: we are a nation passionate about art, culture and especially sports (a symbol of unity in a previously divided country).

Generally speaking you can expect to experience “First World” to meet the “Third World”, with people either living a rural existence or in big cities and not much in between. South Africa has a mixed economy and by UN classification South Africa is a middle-income country.
