    Default South Africans?

    Hey guys~
    I heard there are a lot of South Africans living in Miami, but have only met one so far.
    Any ideas where I can find them?
    Cheers!

    Hi CJ33, Welcome to the forums,

    I checked, and found this group on meetup, but it seems you're already a member...

    I have lived here 4 years now and never met one South African person. Wonder where they're hiding? Brickell probably, I never go there.

    Maybe they're scattered. I know there's a decent amount of French, Germans and British living in Miami, but they aren't concentrated in any certain area.

    I'm sure Miami has a good number.

    Probably the most well known is Cliff Drysdale, who runs the tennis school at the Ritz in KB.

    I've met a few South Africans along the way - primarily the family that owned Williams Island in Aventura, and a disfunctional couple in South Beach, one who had a fascination with selling peanut butter.

    I don't think there is a specific community with heavy South African influence in Miami like there is for Argentinians, Russians, Cubans, etc.
