your home away from home...
✈ Moving to a new country is a daunting experience, whether you’re going it alone, relocating with family or simply there to gain employment experience. Saffa Abroad caters for any and all South Africans living abroad, with news, resources and some local flavours to make your new home feel more like home. ✈
A place for your wandering soul…
South Africans are a strange bunch. We’re eclectic, loud, respect our elders, walk barefoot and are of all races, creeds and faiths.
We grew up walking through fields of mealies, vinyeards and sunflowers. Our neighbours may have had mansions with staircases under enormous roman archs, or lived in shacks with no water or electricity.
We understand diversity. We understand a sense of loss, disconnect and betrayal by our past, our parents, our peers or our politicians.
And yet we have an inherent resilience. We have a love for the land and the people. We believe in Ubuntu, despite all the discord we’ve been fed. We still hope for a better future – one where we can walk the wide expanses of the savannah, the Karoo and the highlands without fear or regret.
We live elsewhere now, but our hearts will always linger in the shadow of longing.
WE ARE AFRICAN.
