African Relocation Guides

When relocating to a new city and country there is so much information available that it can become quite confusing for a foreign national to ascertain what is important and what is irrelevant.

As a result Relocation Africa has compiled African Relocation Guides for various cities and countries in Africa and are currently in the process of compiling guides for the other African cities and countries which they represent.

You can purchase our African Relocation Guides to help you make your prospective relocation a lot easier. Relocation Africa has compiled each guide in a manner that it is beneficial and user-friendly to an expatriate and their family who are moving into a new environment. The information in these guides is aimed at people who are relocating, be it temporarily or permanently, to a new city.

This practical approach to the guides highlights relevant information convenient to the expatriate and includes things such as accommodation, transport, education, security issues, directory of contact details, health care, services, etc.
