Geographic Area Orientation - Look & See Visit

From where the local vet can be found, to where your nearest 24-hour convenience store is located, there’s a lot for you to learn and get used to when you move to a new area.

Moving to the new location is a big undertaking. Accepting an assignment or deciding on which residential area to live in is even more difficult when none of the roads look right and you don’t recognise half the store and brand names around you.

Designed to ensure that our clients have a familiarisation and understanding of what it takes to live and work in Johannesburg, the orientation program is for executives who have accepted or are considering their assignment in Johannesburg, to give them a better understanding of their surroundings so they are able to make informed decisions about their move to Johannesburg.

  • A city tour & familiarisation with typical residential areas

What’s more, we’ll help you plot a route to work, warn you about traffic hotspots, and even program all the relevant addresses into your GPS device.
