I am evaluating an employment opportunity in Cape Town and will move with my wife & 1 year old. I am currently on a contract in India and make about 20,000R here so I will double my income by moving to cape Town. However, the cost of living seems to be 3 times higher when compared to India. We'd like to live in a gated apartment with electrified fence and security in a safe area in Cape Town and also buy a car. Can somebody help me understand if R40,000 a month is a good deal or should I look elsewhere?
