Overview

One of our strategic goals is to develop and grown George with innovative and entrepreneurial solutions - for all of the Citizens of George. Our Vision is George - A City for a Sustainable Future. We live our values, focus on our citizens, work smart, act like owners and are the brand.

Top 10 reasons for investing in George

  • Live and play with the beauty of the Garden Route as your backdrop – considered one of the best scenic drives in the world
  • A safe living environment with comparatively low crime rates
  • A temperate climate with mild summers and winters and rainfall year round
  • Excellent schools (public and private) and tertiary education institutions, with NMMU George Campus having already embarked on extensive expansions in degrees offered locally.
  • World class municipal infrastructure including water provision, sewage systems, roads and electrical distribution systems. 
  • George Airport offers multiple daily flights to and from  Johannesburg as well as Cape Town – this means only a few hours by plane to the main economic hubs of South Africa
