An article recently published on Fin24 reports that many of South Africa’s affluent citizens have ditched Joburg in favour of other parts of the country. 

In the last 10 years (from 2007 to 2017) the number of super rich (those with a wealth of R12 million or more) in Johannesburg has gown down by 4% while those numbers have gone up in Cape Town, Durban and the Garden Route by 3%, 8% and 14% respectively. But the Cape Winelands is an even bigger attraction for millionaires with numbers rising by 20%. 

The Mother City and the Garden Route are also popular for being second home hotspots for those who’ve made bank. 

With all this being said, don’t you want to know where exactly these super-rich people are setting up to spend their money? Well, we take a look at some of the houses that could be potential drawcards for the wealthy.
