Take a step back into time and visit the charming Victorian town of Matjiesfontein. Fondly known as “The Grand Duchess of the Karoo”, this is the perfect place to start your Karoo adventure.
Culture & Heritage
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.
Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (mocaa)
Boasting the largest collection of African art on the continent and rivaling the likes of the Tate Modern in London, MoMA in New York and Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, the Zeitz MOCAA is the jewel in Cape Town's crown.
