Tshwane is known for a bunch of things: the Union Buildings, a very big monument, lots of one-way streets, diplomats, and Jacarandas. But did you know it’s also the home of DJ Spoko’s bacardi house music, and that it’s considered to be one of the friendliest cities in South Africa? Which is all the more reason to find a place to stay here, especially if you’re in the market for one of the many bachelor flats in Tshwane. Want to relocate to Tshwane so you’re closer to the north? Then you’ll need to know how to engage maximum friendship mode – which also means that you’ll need to be a good neighbour. Here’s how…

  1. Be considerate
  2. This is probably the number-one rule of being a good neighbour – you can be as friendly as you want, but if you’re pumping music (even bacardi house) at all hours you’re not going to be liked. This is even more important if you’re one of those who live in bachelor pads in Tshwane. 

    Easy idea: Be aware of the noise you make; use headphones if you’re watching an action-packed series on Netflix, and keep phone conversations with bae indoors. 

  3. Just say hello (we dare you)
  4. The quickest way to being liked by your neighbours is pretty simple (yet so few of us do it): straight after moving in, knock on your neighbour’s door and introduce yourself. It can be a five-minute conversation but it makes all the difference. It’s also good to know who your immediate neighbours are from a safety point of view, in case you ever need their help. 

    Easy idea: This one honestly just starts with a knock on the door…

  5. It’s the small things
  6. It doesn’t matter whether you live in Tshwane or Tokyo, showing a random act of kindness to your neighbours can go a very long way. Thinking of others makes them look at you in a different (positive) light, always.  

    Easy idea: It can be the smallest of gestures; sweep the winter leaves away from your neighbour’s door, or ask them if they need anything from the shops the next time you run into them.
