If the superior lifestyle of the rich (and the famous) suits you, then Clifton, Cape Town, in the Western Cape is your favourite place to live.

But it’s not just the glorious beachside properties that make it one of the most expensive suburbs in South Africa; it’s the lifestyle too.

Reminiscent of the relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle, living in Clifton is not your typical suburban experience. A quick look at the Clifton property prices will reveal that simply having a few million in the bank won’t cut it. The super-rich are the target market for this modern wonder, and it’s no wonder if I check out the price for a quaint one-bedroom apartment in Clifton.


Gentleman’s estate in Bishopscourt, R88 500 000


Country living spaces, with the added convenience of being ideally located close to where you need to be in Cape Town, Bishopscourt features highly when listing the 10 most expensive suburbs in Cape Town.

A little meander through this exquisite suburb offers you the equal opportunities of celeb-spotting and enjoying the idyllic views. Expect landscaped gardens, expansive lawns, tennis courts, and wine cellars, to be found in almost every home.

Development within Bishopscourt is closely guarded and restricted, to help this incredible suburb retain its reputation as the paragon of multi-millionaire living.

Camps Bay



It’s not enough to simply play in Camps Bay, when you could buy yourself a sweet studio apartment for just under R2 million. It’s worth trying to squeeze your stuff into a small apartment in Camps Bay, because the views and soft white sand along the beach makes it all so very worthwhile, all year round. Camps Bay is the place to be, for eating out, having fun, and living the high fashion lifestyle. Bring your bikini!
