​This is your page.  Contact us and tell us what's going on in your neck of the woods.  Send us some photos! Where do you go for fun? Are there expat get-togethers? Just how did you end up in Malawi?  That kind of thing. Here's the story so far...

Snapshots

  • 212,000 expat Brits live in South Africa - that's the biggest cluster on the continent.
  • 2,700 expat pensioners live in Nigeria (do you all know each other?)
  • ​12 African nations have fewer than 100 British residents (probably a good reason for that).
