Country Profile

An interesting country, both culturally and politically, with the potential to be a leader in African Democracy. Blessed with stunning National Parks and wildlife, the mighty Zambezi River and Victoria Falls, this is one of the ‘must visit’ countries in central Africa.

Please contact our office. We will be pleased to send you details of some real-estate companies as well as the list of schools that could be suitable for your children.

Moving Pets

Many relocations to and from Africa include pets, dogs in particular. We move your pets safely and comfortably. We ensure that direct flights are used whenever possible and that the transit time is kept to a bare minimum. In most cases we construct the transit containers to IATA the specifications but you may use your own if it conforms. We encourage you to use the transit container well before the move so your pet can feel completely at home in it. Delivery of your pet to your new home is looked after by professionals, all of whom are members of the necessary international trade associations. It is the responsibility of the pet owner to comply with veterinary and quarantine requirements.

  • Pets are relocated safely and comfortably
  • Our personal touch ensures that the relocation is made as smooth as possible
  • Pets travel in IATA-approved travel containers
  • All airline and customs documentation is seen to, as is compliance with veterinary and quarantine requirements

Orientation Services

It’s not easy finding your way around in a new city if you don’t have the resources of a resident friend to show you the ropes. The aim of our City Orientation Tour is to show you where to find what you need and make your initial settling-in period a little easier. As well, you can use your own car if you like (or ours) to get you accustomed to driving in local city traffic.

The tour includes: favored expat residential areas, shopping centers, the central business district, schools, hospitals, embassies, specialty shops such as delicatessens, hardware stores, furnishing stores, liquor stores, opticians, major hotels, restaurants, entertainment spots, and points of cultural interest. In addition you will be shown sports and social clubs as well as spots to acquire a reliable vehicle. A Worldwide Movers Africa representative will collect you from your hotel or office where we will generate an orientation tour that suits your particular needs. The tour lasts approximately four hours and includes lunch. Please contact our office for more information.

Safety

Most African metropolises are considerably safer than some larger western cities. Common sense and some pertinent advice make life easier and more secure. Please call Worldwide Movers Africa who will be pleased to organize an Orientation Tour for you during which time you can discuss home security, car security, security companies and various methods to prevent theft.
