The study which was carried out by a research firm focusing on data that centers around quality of life, Numbeo, ranked South African cities Cape Town and Pretoria first and  second, with Kenya’s Nairobi emerging third.

While Numbeo placed Johannesburg as the fourth city in Africa with the best healthcare, Durban was fifth, Algiers was sixth, and Tunis was seventh.
