As the World gets smaller, South Africa is fast becoming not only a place to visit, but a place to buy, say specialist property agents ‘Elephant Shrew’.

Attractive property investment opportunities are becoming more difficult to find, so canny investors are travelling further afield.

Recent years have seen over 1.5 million visitors to the land that Sir Francis Drake described as ‘the fairest Cape in all the world’ and 9 out of 10 of them said that they wanted to go back. With extensive funding going into South Africa ahead of the World Cup 2010, there has never been a better time to buy, whether for holidays, retirement, relocation or investment purposes.

Elephant Shrew has a great variety of property for sale with prices ranging from £25,000 for a plot of land, around £45,000 for a 2-bed apartment near to the beach, all the way up to one of the best wine estates in the Cape – which for a cool £25 million, you can expect to make fantastic profits as it includes 80 hectares of development land!

Or how about a ‘lifestyle’ apartment overlooking Durban’s golden beaches, which includes butler and chauffeur service, use of a helicopter for trips to game parks, a catamaran for sailing parties and a private box at the Absa Stadium for international cricket, rugby and football – all this for £560,000.

For the business minded there are a huge range of opportunities including land development, retail and commercial sites and guest houses and farms for those seeking to relocate.

All of this comes complete with fabulous weather, a wonderful range of sporting and cultural activities, low cost of living, fantastic food and wine and unrivalled scenery all around you.
