My experience is with dental work. An implant in Switzerland cost me CHF 10,000 and in S. Africa it’s just CHF 1,500. My dentist, though S. African, is UK trained having had a practice for many years in London.
We have friends who come to Cape Town in November and stay till February. During this time they have all,their cosmetic surgery and dental work done at prices way below those charged in the UK, saving over 80% or about 50% taking into account air fare and hotels.
Many S. African doctors are US or UK trained or have practised there, made their money and have come back to enjoy an easier pace of life, so you’re in pretty good hands.
