South Africa vs Mauritius cost of living

Can any South African expats please advise the cost of living of South Africa compared to now living in Mauritius, for example meat, fruit, veg etc. or anything else you want to mention.
Safety is also important. I notice one can buy apartments in complexes, similar to our estates in South Africa. Are there monthly levies payable at these complexes as in SA?
I recall reading something about being allowed to purchase property if it is 2-storey buildings or higher. Maybe I am asking a silly question. Does that mean you are not allowed to buy a single storey house or apartment?
Warm regards from Cape Town.
