Obviously, embarking on expat life in South Africa is not only about packing boxes and getting some paperwork done. The regular exchange with your German compatriots is also an important aspect of the expat experience and can help you get accustomed to the South African culture and people. InterNations helps you meet and interact with other Germans in South Africa, living in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and many other places across the country. Just take a look at our group ofGermans in Johannesburg or Germans in Cape Town.

- Browse our high-quality expat network to find like-minded expatriates from Germany in South Africa.

Take Part in Various Expat Activities to Meet Fellow Germans in South Africa
Additionally, you are cordially invited to participate in our regular expat events and activities taking place in South Africa. Our events cover various interests and range from a small expat dinner to enjoy the traditional South African bobotie, to big expat get-togethers with hundreds of guests in Cape Town’s top locations. You may also join one of our expat excursions for a weekend trip together with a group of fellow Germans in Pretoria to visit the Cape of Good Hope, the wilderness trails of Kruger National park, and other impressive landmarks across South Africa.
This way, our events and activities are a very nice occasion to meet fellow expats from Germany and around the world in a casual atmosphere. Interested? Sign up for membership and you’ll soon be welcomed with a warm Grüß Gott from our Germans living in South Africa!
