What we're about

This group for anybody from South Africa and all neighbouring African countries, anybody planning on travelling to South Africa, anyone that’s been to South Africa and liked it or even just anybody that likes South Africa, South Africans or South African things!

Our hope is for this to be an all-inclusive group where everyone is made to feel welcome, regardless of background, age and nationality or religious beliefs.

Our meetings will predominantly centre on doing fun social things that are typically South African. These can include braais, picnics, games nights, outdoor cricket/touch rugby, watching sports, going camping etc. All other suggestions are welcome! We have a regular monthly meetup for drinks and a social chat which is an easy open space for meeting fabulous new people, where you already have a starting point and something in common.

It’s completely FREE to join, so hope to see you at one of our fun Meetups soon!
