Culture & Heritage Experiences

Nowhere does it better

The Western Cape is a hugely diverse province, a melting pot of cultures and heritage. From our storied past to our present, there is a huge amount to explore. Here we boast an open narrative of the past, with its vibrant and colourful people providing the material to shape a beautiful tapestry for the future.

From the legacy of Nelson Mandela and the San people to the rock art of the Cederberg and the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art, you will find more than just paint on canvases inside a building.
