Celebrate South Africa's artistic renaissance in Johannesburg, exploring compelling street art with expert Jo Buitendach and seeing traditional West and Central African pieces.


After flying to Cape Town, head to the Winelands to discover galleries and sculpture gardens, sampling excellent vintages along the way.


Your days in Cape Town feature a curator-led tour of Jochen Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art, conversations with collectors, and ambles in a warehouse district buzzing with young artists.
