NUMBER 1: Cape Town

Ranked #15 overall, Cape Town is an ever popular travel option for nomads and holiday makers alike. With beautiful beaches, mountain views, scenic hiking trails and a great night life, its no wonder one nomad commented; "I will make this a regular stop on my nomadic work journey."

NUMBER 2: Johannesburg

"A nomad wanting a high quality and cheap lifestyle I think would enjoy it." This perfectly sums up Johannesburg. This city has often been compared to living in New York but with cheaper accommodation and perhaps a bit more crime.

NUMBER 3: Port Elizabeth

Yet another seaside city makes the list with PE being ranked 217 overall. This smallish city offers the best of all other cities combined; There is the ocean, very cheap accommodation, less crime than most others and great internet. Add in the international airport and you cant go wrong!

NUMBER 4: Pretoria

Situated in very close proximity to Johannesburg, Pretoria is often overlooked as a nomad destination. However, here you will find a slightly cheaper cost of living than in Johannesburg and less crime as well. Its a great alternative if Johannesburg is your kind of thing.

NUMBER 5: Durban

Durban is a great option for nomads with families as it has an international airport, tropical climate and sandy beaches. It's also home to Africa's biggest aquarium; Ushaka Marine World boasts some truly spectacular marine displays and a wonderful water park that the kids will adore.
