A big country in a big continent, South Africa’s pure beauty and diversity is astonishing. The country at the bottom of Africa has a coastline on both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, 1,500 miles in total, geography that covers vineyards, desert, wilderness and awe-inspiring mountains and some eleven official languages.
South Africa includes the busy cities of Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town and game reserves, elephant sanctuaries and beaches where you might glimpse migrating whales or nesting turtles.
South Africa is the economic powerhouse of Africa with plentiful natural resources. It is well connected with the world by air and on a comparable time zone to much of western Europe. English is widely spoken and there is no restriction on foreigners owning property in the country.
Foreign investors and lifestyle buyers look mainly in and around Cape Town with some interest in KwaZulu-Natal and Johannesburg.
