From Downtown to Out of Town

There is a city-and-safari trip where art and an aesthetic experience surround you at every turn.

Zeitz MOCAA’s unique architectural redevelopment of the V&A Waterfront’s iconic Grain Silo Complex is set to become a major non-profit cultural institution, housing one of the world’s most significant collections of contemporary art  from Africa and its diaspora.

In celebration of its opening, Ellerman House invites guests on an ‘art in Africa’ journey.

Start with a visit to Segera Retreat in Kenya, one of the world’s most luxurious safari destinations and home of  Zeitz MOCAA co-founder Jochen Zeitz. Segera helps conserve an area with the second-highest density of wildlife in Kenya. Expressing just how luxurious sustainability can be, the retreat houses incredible art pieces from the Zeitz Collection.

Conclude your journey with a stay at Ellerman House, Cape Town’s iconic cliff-side location, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Bantry Bay. With views that will astound the most jaded traveller, Ellerman House is very much a luxurious home rather than a hotel, with a very quiet, exclusive atmosphere (guests may invite friends but the house is closed to the public).

It’s a mere 10-minute drive from Zeitz MOCAA, and guests will be able to visit the museum during their stay.

Visitors can also take in a tour of the most important South African art collection with Ellerman House’s art guide. The in-house collection transports visitors on an exploration of the huge social and cultural shift that South African art has made from the mid-19th century to the present. Each piece tells of the character of the land and is an expression of a unique South African experience.
