Here are the 3 hottest destinations for billionaires in Africa

Billionaires are travelling a lot more in 2019.

Egypt is the number one hottest spot for billionaires in Africa

Nowadays, it is not uncommon for the super-rich to take expensive 'sabbaticals' all over the world in order to recharge as they spend time with their family.

This is the latest trend, according to Jack Ezon, president of Ovation Travel. The travel company's clients include New York financiers and Hollywood moguls.

Speaking with a luxury travel magazine called Condé Nast Traveler, he said, "We've had a significant spike in clients, largely between the ages of 35 and 50, looking to take extended sabbaticals."

"The common denominator is a Type-A overachiever, either between jobs or having recently sold off their company or just at a meltdown point of complete work and personal life imbalance. It's their chance to really disconnect so they can reconnect to themselves, their loved ones, and the world around them," Ezon further revealed.
