Africa is the world’s second largest continent, filled with the possibility for big adventures under endless skies.

In demand locations for a home from home include Cape Town, South Africa’s magnificent city by the sea where so-called “swallows” choose to holiday far from the harsh winters in the northern hemisphere and the exotic Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius, the Seychelles and the Maldives.

All of these are popular holiday hotspots with international travellers where good flight access and an established infrastructure of hotels and activities also provide a strong potential rental market.
