Garden Route, where one can purchase a house worth $5 million dollars for
$800,000 - It's a secret place where unmatched luxury exists in one
of the world's most spectacular settings. Feathered in two EscapeArtist
Special Reports the area will be a revelation
to many. Few Americans have heard of the Garden Route, those that
have are keeping it to themselves. That such a wonderful way of life
had been kept secret for so long is probably due to the fact that Americans
only recently began moving overseas. Europeans know about the Garden
Route and there has been an increasing number of Europeans moving there.
Lately Americans have begun moving there. These Special Reports will certainly
persuade others to do so. The place is breath-takingly beautiful.
Moving to Panama or Belize is better than being in the USA; moving to Knysna,
as shown in the images in these reports, would seem to be a better move
than moving to almost anywhere on earth. Strong words? Well, take
a look — there is no question that it is indeed a splendid place - perhaps
the right place at the right time! - Where

Critical Look At South Africa Politics And Economics
- When I worked for a business and management consulting firm in
Johannesburg, the first multi – racial election was held in South Africa.
The days of the election were proclaimed public holidays. On the first
morning of the election, as I did not have to work, I went to my favourite
restaurant in Jo’burg for an extensive breakfast. When turning around the
corner, I realized all of a sudden that the police had done a complete
road block. There was no traffic on the road at all. Instead, there were
people, loads of people, probably thousands of people, standing peacefully
in line. Whites, Blacks, Colourds, Indians, peacefully waiting, chatting
with each other, playing musical instruments….The first thought that crossed
my mind was “what the heck is that”? It then dawned on me that they were
all waiting in front of a voting station.

Mountain & Sea: Atlantic Seaboard, Cape Town, South Africa
- “Can you repeat that?” I ask only to hear it again. “I’m valuing at 900
000 Rand” or US$150 000. Her voice sounds like music. The estate agent
hands me her card, again, “Are you selling? I always have clients looking
for this kind of property.” Am I selling? In my excitement I start to wonder
if I should. I paid $53,000 for this 2 bedroom apartment two years ago.
That isn’t too shabby of a return. Will this price hold? Should I get out
now? The experts say yes and no. Properties gurus are saying that values
are not only stable but will continue to grow; don’t sell. This was
my appraisal experience a few months ago and I know that most property
owners in Cape Town have had a similar experience.
Dutch Architecture - The Little Provisions Stop That Did
- Africa ends where Cape Town begins. Beyond the Hottentots-Holland mountain
range, across rolling hills and flat plains extending out to the Indian
and Atlantic Oceans sits the oldest city in South Africa. For more than
3 centuries travelers and adventures from all over the globe have come
to the most southern tip of the African continent for rest and often
have found themselves a new home. The 12 peaks of the Apostle’s Mountain
range and the city’s prominent landmark Table Mountain both overlook glorious
white sand beaches and places of culinary delights with superb wine and
hospitable people. These are but a few of the characteristics which help
define the city’s spirit. Incomparable beauty and modern pleasures are
noteworthy reasons why Cape Town currently tops international tourist destination
lists. Alas, often absent from these lists is the elegant and one of a
kind architecture within and surrounding the city.
to Cape Town, South Africa - Moving To One Of The World's Most Beautiful
Cities - Over the past few years, more and
more small businesses from particularly the States and Europe have relocated
their operational base to South Africa. Cape Town in particular has
abundance of highly skilled and educated personnel, who are currently unemployed
or in part-time or contract employment. It is this highly skilled
and available workforce which favours the decision to relocate an operational
base to Cape Town. Savings of between 30-50% on operational and employment
costs is the major reason for such decision to relocate. Living in
South Africa at a fraction of the cost of living in the States, whilst
maintaining the highest of living standards, comparative to that of most
major cities in the world, makes for a favourable argument in support of
moving to South Africa.
to opening a business in South Africa’s golden city: Johannesburg
- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and the Industrial Development
(IDC), oversee the incentives schemes in the form of non-tax grants. The
incentive grants are limited to three years for any project. Ventures from
the following segments qualify: manufacturing; agriculture; aquamarine;
biotechnology; tourism; IT; communications; agro-processing; cultural enhancement;
business development; motor industry; textiles; engineering, and science
development. The allowances can be grouped under the following categories:
Broad-spectrum incentives - The general assistance takes the form of electricity
allowances for larger companies, assistance programs for industrial originality
and joint ventures, expertise support programs with concessions for instruction
of new employees, as well as the skill and workforce program to encourage
the transferring of knowledge. This applies to businesses that endeavor
to expand their operations. Compensation is limited to half the cost for
training the new workforce.

- Thanks to all who have written and expressed such kindness to my last
(and first!) article. There are some fabulous people out there in the world
and it seems they are reading these magazines! The response has been fantastic
with many asking great questions about immigration and life in New Zealand.
It seems good to take time and answer in a way that will enable more to
read them: there will have to be more than one part as there are so many
different types of questions. Many who responded to the first article are
parents and, interestingly, writers, teachers and those with education.
As the new school year has just begun in New Zealand, and a teacher myself,
I will start with those questions relating to education. Most of these
questions came from a reader named Natalie who is a teacher as well and
are a composite with others.
important immigration resources for South Africa
to South Africa - Considering immigrating to and settling in South
Africa? Here's information on immigration categories, requirements and
application procedures, and the answers to some frequently asked questions.
Africa Immigration in General - The Republic of South Africa
can accommodate only a certain number of immigrants. South Africa has a
vast reserve of unskilled and semi-skilled workers who are entitled to
employment opportunities and to economically viable lifestyle. For this
reason no one in the unskilled and semi-skilled categories will be accepted
as an immigrant worker in South Africa. Because of the considerable need
for the creation of job opportunities for South African workers as well
as for their training and development, South Africa cannot afford to grant
permits for immigration to persons who are not seriously committed to immigrating
to the country permanently and to investing their assets, skills, knowledge
and experience for the benefit of themselves and the people of South Africa.
South Africa - At
ImmigrationSouthAfrica.org we offer free advice and information to immigrate
to South Africa successfully. Read updated information about South Africa
and complete an online immigration Eligibility Assessment. Lastly, you
can find an South African immigration consultant to assist you.

Africa The World’s New Destination -
OThe Republic of South Africa, located at the tip of Africa, is the world’s
new favourite tourist AND migration destination. As other countries
around the globe make it more and more difficult to migrate to, South Africa
has eased its restrictions. The intention of the South African Government
is to attract skilled workers to the country. South Africa is short of
500,000 graduates in various fields including IT, Engineering, Business
and many other technical fields. One of the strategies is for South Africa
to become the call centre capital of the world. This requires skilled people
and investment. As a tourist destination, South Africa is “a world in one
country”. At 6 South African Rands (ZAR) to the USD it is a relatively
inexpensive country to visit, and a great country to invest in or immigrate
Properties: Exotic and a Bargain by Doug Casey
- I've come to the conclusion that property in South Africa is now
among the best bargains in the world, in both absolute and relative terms.
On this trip, I stuck to Jo'berg and the Cape; it's a big country and I
simply put myself in the hands of my fairly numerous South African relatives.
I can't make any recommendations on Jo'burg property because although it's
cheap, I can't see the opportunity, and have no personal interest in it.
That's not to say parts of Jo'berg aren't quite nice; the northern suburbs
(Rosebank, Sandton, Illovo, Saxonwold, etc.) are thoroughly white; you
wouldn't know these areas from any upmarket enclave in Europe or North
America to judge by the people in the stores and cafes. It's just that
the whites are a privileged enclave in a sea of much poorer people, most
of them young, many with chips on their shoulders, from a different race.
And that reduces its appeal considerably. The Cape has very different dynamics.
Opportunities in South Africa - The interest
rate cuts this year have had a number of positive impacts, one of which
is an emerging trend in the South Africa property market that presages
good news for the residential property sector in South Africa. "The most
recent 100 basis point cut comes on top of 250 points in cuts since December
last year as the Reserve Bank tries to ameliorate the weakening economy,"
said Sanett Uys, director at Colliers International Property and Facilities
Management. "It's important to note that there are still active investors
in the market, even globally, and they are looking for opportunities,"
Estate property booming in South Africa
- During the past five years there had been significant growth in the residential
golf estate sector in South Africa. So says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive
of the Pam Golding Property (PGP) group, who adds that "during this period,
50% of a total of approximately 30,000 residential golf estate properties
– located within 66 golf estate developments – came onto the market in
South Africa". "Around 4,000 of these were sectional title properties.
From a regional perspective these are spread in Gauteng (around 33% of
total stock), the Western Cape (30%) and KwaZulu-Natal (16%). Naturally
some of the older and well-established estates such as Fancourt, Erinvale,
Camelot, Princess Grant, Mount Edgecombe, Dainfern and Centurion have been
around for more than 10 years

depression or deeper downturn. - From
