I stayed in a guest house for the first 2 weeks and that alone cost quite a lot and then food is also pricey (as comparison to back home :P) but damn, they are huge portions (for me, anyway!) so in a way, that is a good thing. Over here I can get a decent place to live in about R2300 for a 2 bedroom flat. That is good enough for me for now as I have plans to move elsewhere later on to a bigger place.
In any case, I am sure others here have better experience but if you need more info, perhaps I can help you out as my best friend of high school is now living in Joburg. I will PM you my email address as I am hardly on this forum. Busy exploring Cape Town!!
Hey There BM,
Which part of CT are you in? I'm moving there in Dec and will be looking for work and a place to stay. I have two lil girls as well and would love to know where you are living for 2300R a mth for a 2 br flat. Also what kind of work do you do? Is it easy to find work once I am in the country?! I was living in CT for 2 years and have made some amazing friends there hence the need to return.. It somehow feels like home
Look forward to hearing from you. Stay well and enjoy exploring CT!
