    A Cape Dreams Introduction Description

    Again, a warm South African welcome to this Cape Dreams website. From our experience in emigrating from the UK to Cape Town in 2005 we felt there was a clear need to provide an 'information based' point for anyone wishing to spend time in the the Cape. Whether it be a permanent or temporary move, investment or just a holiday, we believe the information given on this website will be useful in one form or another.

    We are very aware there will be many individual and different requirements and clearly it is not possible to cover every single point. However, the information presented on this website is designed to help, guide and in some cases point you in the right direction for further assistance.
