Just about as safe as spending time in a cave with a grizzly bear.

Well I wouldn't move for that salary! Expect to pay R14000.00pm for a good place to stay. R3500.00pm for groceries. R3000.00 for medical insurance then you need a car plus insurance plus R700pm for Satellite TV. Not worth it.

There is a brand new bus service with it's own dedicated lane running from Bloubergstrand to the City centre every 20mins and it only takes around 40mins. This is the area to be nowadays if you hate traffic jams and don't need to take your car into the City

Hi I am moving from India to westville Durban. I am totally new to this country Can anyone give me any view of westville
Taylor0509 replied most recently with:
Hi there GangaS Westville, is one of the many upmarket areas in South Africa. It is very close to one of our biggest shopping malls The Pavilion. It is also very easy to access our CBD area from the Westville area. It is advisable that you get a motor vehicle as there are not a lot of public transport that services the Westville area. Take care and Enjoy South Africa !!!
