The South African black majority still has a substantial number of rural inhabitants who lead largely impoverished lives. It is among these people that cultural traditions survive most strongly; as blacks have become increasingly urbanised and Westernised, aspects of traditional culture have declined. Members of the middle class, who are predominantly white but whose ranks include growing numbers of black, coloured and Indian people, have lifestyles similar in many respects to that of people found in Western Europe, North America and Australasia.
South Africa contains some of the oldest archaeological and human-fossil sites in the world. Archaeologists have recovered extensive fossil remains from a series of caves in Gauteng Province. The area, a UNESCO World Heritage site, has been branded “the Cradle of Humankind”. The sites include Sterkfontein, one of the richest sites for hominin fossils in the world.
Government and politics
South Africa is a parliamentary republic, although unlike most such republics the President is both head of state and head of government, and depends for his tenure on the confidence of Parliament. The executive, legislature and judiciary are all subject to the supremacy of the Constitution, and the superior courts have the power to strike down executive actions and acts of Parliament if they are unconstitutional.

For entry into most countries, on a long-term or permanent basis, it will be necessary to have the appropriate Visa and passport requirements. You should contact the Consulate of the country to which you are relocating to ensure that your documentation is in order, and that entry of both yourself and your goods is allowed. Some countries apply strict regulations to the importing your household effects and heavy financial penalties can be applied if the appropriate Visa’s or work permits are not in place. Overseas Moving Scene cannot advise you in respect of immigration and the Consular Representative should be equipped to advise you of all documentary requirements and how to apply for appropriate Visa’s and work permits.
The varied sizes, shapes and structures of household furniture create inherent risks, and, despite our special packing materials and careful handling by our staff, these risks cannot be fully eliminated. Overseas Moving Scene has a limited liability policy which can be extended to cover wider forms of liability if required.
