If you want beach property I hope it's on the coast.

I have had very "informal" email discussions with this group. Hope it is of some help: http://www.hassconsult.co.ke/property.html
Please keep us abreast of your plans, as my husband and I are kind of in the same boat.

atlcity - A beach can exist next to a lake, which can be a considerable distance from the coast. By your name you're from Atlanta, if so go visit Oconee, or Hartwell, etc.

atlcity - Your proximity to the ocean has made beach and coast the same in your mind. I assure you, for the vast majority who don't live near an ocean, the "beach" is the nearest shore of a body of water covered by sand, gravel, or larger rock fragments.

I used to live on the shore of Lake Superior and believe me, when you said "beach" everyone knew you meant the close one. ;-)

Kris:
We nearly bought property in Africa this past month, and our person came and visited us at two lodges, and has followed up with correspondence regularly.

My husband was still deterred by the trip home ( a killer 2-day affair). Still, this agent has been in constant (non-intrusive) communication. If we ever decide to become property owners in Africa, we'll contact him. Here's his info:

Brian Spilkin
PO Box 782738 Sandton 2146
29 Homestead RD Rivonia 2128
South Africa
Tel: +270(0)11 803-3777
Cell: 082 419 6215
Email: [email protected]

ALSO...the manager at the Royal Malewane...whose name was John -
seemed to be very knowledgable about property ownership, and was very willing to share his knowledge. HeSorry that I don't have his numbers readily available! Will have to dig them up, but you should be able to find them off the Royal Malewane website.
