The world’s largest museum of contemporary African art dominates the business hub of the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. The Zeitz MOCAA building houses many displays representing South Africa’s rich history. It’s not just the historical homegrown heritage that makes it a worldwide phenomenon, it’s the nine floors of African art and diaspora, the reimagined architecture and design of a grain silo. It’s the lavish luxury hotel sitting atop this beautiful building with an extraordinary panoramic view of the city landscape as well as the delicious contemporary cuisine - from the classic, hearty Gatsby to our local twist on braai vleis and indulgent, proudly South African desserts.
