With South Africa's multitude of cultures and languages, it's understandable that planning a move there, not to mention adapting to its massive melting pot of cultures, can seem overwhelming for prospective expats. To make moving to South Africa easier, there are a number of good local and international relocation companies that can assist expats with their move.

Relocation companies offer services such as pre-departure orientation, neighbourhood orientation, home-finding services, pet relocation and house content relocation.

Below is a list of some of the most well-known relocation companies that offer services in South Africa.
