About the Team
Living in South Africa

The 'Living in South Africa' guide book is a collaborative effort of an amazing team, which put Regina's idea and concept for an expat guidebook and Derryn's passion for sharing information about her awesome country, to work.

The book was born out of the desire to showcase South Africa to foreigners and expats in its own rights as real information and resources is not always readily available for expats. South Africa is a beautiful country with lots of opportunities for all who want to make a difference.

The stunning pattern used in the book pays homage to the great colourful patterns created by the Ndebele people of South Africa.

Design Inspiration: Ndebele patterns

This South Africa guide book is loaded with practical tips born out of personal experience which range from tips for relocations to advice for daily life issues such as house hunting and searching for schools.
