Reunited and it feels so good!

A lovely photograph sent through by Shannon Liebenberg, who stayed with us last year. Shannon reunited with her good friend after 23 years, right here at the Villa. :) May you continue to share wonderful memories and adventures together. Best wishes to Shannon & Emilia!

An African Villa looks forward to your return.

A new contemporary art museum is opening in Cape Town in 2017, in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront. The museum is expected to cost over R500 million for the development, but from the pictures released so far, it looks like it will be worth every cent! The Grain Silo is a fascinating structure that was built in the early 1920s. Standing at an impressive 57m tall, it is an integral part of the Cape Town skyline. Transforming this structure into a world-class art museum is sure to breathe new life into the beautiful old building.
