Expand your social circle in South Africa

Hello everyone,

Moving to South Africa means leaving one's family and friends behind. Creating a circle of friends or joining an existing one should therefore be paramount in order to fight loneliness in your host country.

But how can one develop a social network in South Africa? Where and how to meet people there?

How easy is it to meet locals? What about cultural specificities?

Share your advice and experience!

Many thanks in advance,


Well its very important to have friends at the hosting country but it's not easy to call anyone friend so it take time to find the good friends and of course that can happen when we in touch with people and we see who it can match . And of course it's something good to have friends here it help a lot many of us to carry on with the life so we can share many things with Them and of course we learn about from each other  and we get new experience.

Hi! Any idea on how to meet French speaking people in Kempton Park (Jnb)?

Hi everyone,

thanks for your feedbacks.

@ aeg01, maybe you could create a topic on the francophone South Africa forum so that you may get in touch with french speaking expats.

Here is the related category : Réseau social Afrique du Sud

All the best,
