South Africa’s priciest real estate, along Cape Town’s Atlantic seaboard, is a magnet for celebrities and foreign holidaymakers – and all manner of crooks, creeps and miscreants
The flash suburbs of Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard – Camps Bay, Clifton and Bantry Bay – are regularly described as the most expensive real estate in South Africa. True or not, they certainly attract the sort of people about whom there is invariably a story to tell.
Who hasn’t read news stories about SA’s richest man, Pepkor magnate Christo Wiese, celebrity divorce attorney Billy Gundelfinger, or international stars like Annie Lennox and Ruby Wax? They are all respectable people who have no doubt chosen to live there for the sea views and delightful coffee shops.
