Welgelegen, Cape Town

At Welgelegen you’re close to everything that makes Cape Town one of Africa’s most stylish cities – including the achingly fashionable harbour area, and Table Mountain itself.

Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain begins its stretch towards the sky on your doorstep. But turn your back on it and walk down the Welgelegen’s quietly dignified cul-de-sac and you’ll find the bustle of Kloof Street is at your feet – and you’re amidst the sublime local restaurants, chic bars and artisanal stores that help make this city one of the most sophisticated on the continent.

Reason enough to ensure the Welgelegen is part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to South Africa. But there are others. The Waterfront, the Cableway and Camps Bay are close at hand. Fascinating city tours and trips to the top of the Table are easily arranged. Cape Agulhas – the southernmost tip of Africa – the Garden Route and the renowned winelands of the Cape are all accessible.
