Working in South Africa
  • I'm considering taking an overseas position in Johannesburg for six months. I will be doing independent research so will be mostly on my own. My concern are the high crime rates as I am a young, single, female. How safe is it for someone like me in this circumstance to work in South Africa? I've done some overseas traveling before, but have usually been in safer, tourist areas.
  • Hi Trekkerblue, take a look through our growing Joburg expat guide: http://www.expatarrivals.com/south-africa/johannesburg/moving-to-johannesburg

    I am from Joburg originally and can say that yes, it is a dangerous city, but you can hugely minimise your risks by living in a good area with proper security and taking simple precautions that a lot of crime victims dont' take.

Howdy, Stranger!
