FULL DAY – PRIVATE ART GALLERY TOUR
The Cape Artscape – Portrait of a place…
Cape Town and the surrounding regions have aptly been characterized as being “creatively liberal”. This description is easily supported by a walk through the city streets at night as production crews scramble to shoot memorable cinema. The freedom to create filters into the public spaces of the city in sculpture, on walls and onto city streets in song
VISUAL & EXPERIENTIAL EUPHORIA

There are more than 100 galleries within the City of Cape Town alone. Together with the Winelands and coastal regions of the Cape – this number grows even larger. Luxury Africa Safaris has taken great care to sift through the seemingly overwhelming selection to identify the best of the defined and even recently classified art genres.
South Africa has served up some of the world’s most celebrated artists – William Kentridge, Jackson Hlungwani, Irma Stern and others – all these works can be found on display in the Cape region.
Tour, with exclusive access, the Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden or the Lionel Smit Studio & Gallery with the possibility of meeting either of artists.
