To celebrate the opening of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa – the first major museum in Africa dedicated to contemporary art – Jacada Travel has put together a special trip with access to its exclusive opening and all the festivities, as well as private tours showcasing Cape Town’s burgeoning art scene.

Visiting some of the city’s best and most interesting galleries and studios with an expert art guide, you’ll get a chance to chat with the curators and artists themselves and experience a behind-the-scenes, in-depth look into the city’s amazing creative scene.

The below was put together to complement the activities surrounding the opening weekend of the Zeitz MOCAA Museum with five nights in the the ‘Mother City’, arriving on 13th September before, a final two nights relaxing among the verdant vineyards of the Winelands. We recommend booking this exclusive trip in advance, as spaces are strictly limited!

One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town is a city that can really take your breath away. The horizon dominated by the iconic table-top mountain rising up in the background, whilst in the foreground are the crisp waters of the cape, the laid-back bustle of the city’s waterfront skirted by sandy beaches and picturesque suburbs. Spend your first day at leisure before your weekend of fun begins.

Accommodation in The Winelands

Two nights in South Africa's Winelands Two nights in South Africa's Winelands

Enjoy the beautiful countryside of the Winelands. This is one of the most historic areas of South Africa as it’s where many of the original Dutch settlers first made their homes. Pretty towns and villages adorn the countryside, their white washed Dutch colonial buildings contrasting against the lush greens of vineyards, fields and forests.

There are a huge variety of different vineyards to visit here, ranging from small boutique wineries where you may be shown round by the owners themselves to larger, more modern estates. Aside from grapes, all manner of fresh produce is made here, much of which you will find adorning the plates of the excellent restaurants in the area. In fact, this is something of a culinary hotspot, and you’ll have our recommendations for the best spots.

Full day privately guided tour of the Winelands Full day privately guided tour of the Winelands

Today you have a full day in the Winelands with one of our expert wine guides. We will communicate your wine preferences before the tour, so that your guide has time to set up any special appointments. That way, you will have the best experience possible. Typically the regions explored are Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl, but this depends on your wine tastes. On a usual tour, the first stop is Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, with canal-lined avenues, and magnificent examples of Cape Dutch architecture. Next head over the scenic Helshoogte Pass to Franschhoek, founded by French Huguenots over 350 years ago. It's lovely setting and café lined streets will charm you and afford the opportunity to do some shopping too. Optional chocolate, cheese and olive tastings can also be arranged with your guide ahead of time.
