“These adventures are about digging deeper into the heart and soul of Africa and learning about her people through their art, historical and modern day cultures and getting beyond the usual destinations to meet the local people,” says Julia Nesbitt, director of sales and marketing. “We are always on the lookout for rare and enriching experiences that can transform a trip into an unforgettable journey.”
A cultural exploration of Johannesburg begins with a private tour of Brenthurst Gardens on an Oppenheimer estate (think diamond mines). Guests visit Mark Valentine’s much loved African artworks shop, Amatuli Fine Art, and stroll through Rosebank’s art strip, home to some of South Africa’s most famous contemporary and commercial art galleries. Nesbitt also recommends a visit to the world-renowned Apartheid Museum to help traveler’s put the day’s art into a wider historical perspective.
On Day 3, guests transfer by light aircraft directly into Madikwe Private Game Reserve (recognized as one the top place for wildlife conservation), home of Mateya Lodge and one of the world’s finest collections of African art. After a leisurely stay here, on Day 7 guests depart by air for Cape Town’s Ellerman House and its striking modern art collection. Guests explore Cape Peninsula, an African Penguin colony, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden (said to be Africa’s loveliest), winelands and Cape Town’s thriving arts community.
