New Art Trails arrive in Cape Town

Always something new going on in the world of ethical travel! We just heard about Art Trails, a company recently by Diana Williams, a leading local art expert. Focused on the burgeoning art and cultural offerings in Cape Town, Diana is a certified tourist guide providing insight into the local arts and craft industry. With the opening of the first contemporary African art museum on the continent in Cape Town, the Zeitz MOCAA in the Silo District last September, more and more visitors are interested in the South African art landscape.

Art Trails introduces clients to practicing artists and curators and goes ‘behind-the-scenes’ to where art happens – studios, collectives, leading art galleries and hidden collections in private museums and houses. In addition, Art Trails offers winelands tours showcasing some top collections in the vineyard estates and galleries of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek including the extraordinary Dylan Lewis’ sculpture garden just outside Stellenbosch.

Working with community based arts and craft projects in Langa, Masiphumelele and Kayamandi, Art Trails introduces clients to local communities to see where homegrown products are being produced. Visitors can also view bronze and ironwork demonstrations in the Cape Town environs, take nature inspired art tours or antique and historical tours.

Of course all the tours are as sustainably and environmentally run as possible. If you'd like to book an Art Trail with Diana, let us know.

Ethos

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
