"A perfect retirement destination but with much publicised crime problems."
From forests to swamps, from savannah to snow-covered mountains, from endless beaches to peaceful rivers, South Africa has a multitude of natural wonders to enjoy and can offer the visitor a host of adventures and experiences including vibrant Cape Town, Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, the Cradle of Humankind near Johannesburg, the Kruger National Park, Table Mountain, Whale watching and so the list goes on.
Although South Africa has an abundant supply of natural resources and has well developed financial, legal, communications, energy and transport sectors and a modern infrastructure it also suffers from high unemployment, poverty, inequality and crime - all of which remain a challenge.
However South Africa has much to offer and with house prices much lower than the UK and USA many have chosen here are a perfect second home, holiday or retirement destination and from a legal point of view South Africa is one of the safest countries in which to buy.
Like many nations the housing market suffered during the international recession but has recovered well and rental returns can be excellent, especially in Johannesburg, the financial and economic centre of South Africa. If you are not interested in rental returns then most foreigners head for Cape Town with its spectacular beaches and wealth of cafes, bars, museums, shops and restaurants.
