Up and coming: NINE towns named as South Africa’s ‘millionaire hot-spots’

The Africa Wealth Report, by New World Health, for 2022 dished out some data about where the richer few of SA are spending their days.

Hermanus, Western Cape

Hermanus is, according to the report, the fastest growing South African town for high-net-worth individuals. A large number of wealthy Cape Town, Pretoria and Johannesburg residents have relocated to Hermanus over the past ten years.

The report noted that the Western Cape town is probably one of the safest in SA. Eastcliff, Voelklip, Kwaaiwater and Onrus and Fernkloof Estate are some of the affluent parts of Hermanus.

Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch

These three towns are situated quite close to each other. The three, combined, form one of the fastest-growing areas in South Africa for high-net-worth individuals. The report revealed that a significant number of retired high-net-worth individuals have relocated to one of these towns over the past decade.

Umhlanga and La Lucia, KZN

The Africa Wealth Report 2022 has revealed that Umhlanga has been a top second-home hotspot for wealthy residents in Johannesburg since the 70s. After Gateway Theatre of Shopping was constructed in 2001, Umhlanga became a major business hub. A large number of wealthy residents live and work in the area.
