THE PROGRAM

Welcome to South Africa, the world in one country. Upon arrival, you are met by the representative of Emmarosh Travel and driven to your hotel. VIP arrangements are included at the airport. Nestled at the base of the magnificent Table Mountain is the captivating city of Cape Town. This exceptionally scenic city is in a class of its own. Some cities boast rich culture, vibrant nightlife, a cosmopolitan atmosphere, and extraordinary architecture, while others boast breathtaking landscapes and extraordinary natural wonders. Cape Town is lucky enough to have all these attractions and so much more. With its bustling waterfront, world-class beaches, award-winning vineyards, and its mountainous surroundings brimming with diverse flora and fauna, Cape Town consistently captivates all who visit. The Silo is a magical space towering above the V&A Waterfront surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City. The Silo has 28 rooms, including a spectacular penthouse. Each room has been individually designed and decorated by the stylish wand of Liz Biden. Colorful and eclectic pieces juxtapose the modern, industrial architecture. The 6 room categories are based on the room size and the views. The rooms are more spacious vertically than horizontally due to the unique architecture of The Silo and the ingenious design of the pillowed window bays which are one of the key architectural features. The building has been designed by Thomas Heatherwick, Founder and Principal of the London-based Heatherwick Studio. From the outside, the greatest visible change to the building’s original structure is the addition of pillowed glazing panels, inserted into the geometry of the hotel floors, which will bulge outward as if gently inflated. By night, this transforms the building into a glowing lantern or beacon in the harbor. Overnight: The Silo (Deluxe Superior Suite)
Enjoy a guided City tour plus a visit to the Table Mountain by the cable car ride (weather permitting). When the cable car is in the annual maintenance in the months of July and August, guests will see the spectacular views of the city from the Signal Hill.
