The Biggest Thing to Happen to Cape Town in 2017….Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA)

Described as probably the biggest thing to happen to Cape Town in 2017, the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) will open its doors on 23 September 2017.

The first major museum in Africa dedicated to contemporary art, Zeitz MOCAA is a public not-for-profit cultural institution.  They describe their mission as being ‘To collect, preserve, research, and exhibit cutting edge contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora, to develop supporting educational and enrichment programs for all, to encourage intercultural understanding and guarantee access for all.’.

Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, Zeitz MOCAA was established through a partnership between the V&A Waterfront and Jochen Zeitz.

A number of Africa’s greatest works of arts have been ‘hidden away’ and inaccessible to the public.  Until now that is….. The opening of Zeitz MOCAA is set to change all of that.  Now everyone can enjoy African creativity in an incredible, historic building, the Grain Silo at V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.

Housed in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) is The Silo Hotel.

The Silo Hotel will have 28 rooms, including a spectacular one bedroom penthouse.

A Royal Affair

– Cape Town – Botswana – Victoria Falls –

UNBEATABLE SPECIAL. SAVE USD735 PER PERSON PER PACKAGE.  BOOK NOW!

Voted Number 1 City in the World, Cape Town is home to Table Mountain, one of the 7 Wonders of the World and can be seen as far as 200 kilometres out to sea. Affectionately known as the Mother City, Cape Town is historically, culturally and visually, the most diverse, breathtakingly scenic and vibrant city you’ll have had the pleasure to visit! From its achingly beautiful natural attributes to its colourful culture; from decadent wine farms to captivating history and architecture – it’s tourist heaven.

One of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, the Delta is unlike anything else you’ll have seen or experienced.  This legendary inland waterway slices sinuously through a large part of Botswana, creating an area of unimaginable natural splendour. Millions of litres of water reach miraculously into this part of the Kalahari Desert, infinitely enriching an environment that supports an incredible diversity of mammal, fish and bird life.  Meander slowly through the watery courses in a traditional canoe or Mokoro, or travel over land in an open safari vehicle.

One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine a game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white water rafting in the world.
