CR Fashionbook hooks up with London and NYC-based luxury travel innovator Black Tomato in The Art-Lovers Guide to Traveling the World

Scanning co-founder Tom Marchant's enticing list, we paused in Cape Town, where the recent opening of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), the largest collection of contemporary African art in the world. Located in the newly renovated Silo district, the impressive building (once a Grain Silo Complex) has been reinvented by renowned architect Thomas Heatherwick and is a totally unique space that fits into the African context.

From the Silo District, Marchant recommends that we head to to Long Street to browse traditional art and antiques stores. Hungry? Stroll through town up to Bree Street, the strip that cuts through town towards "Table Mountain, a vibrant setting that’s packed with bars, cafes and specialty eateries such as dedicated bars for gin, bacon and cheese. Make sure to stop by Bocca, La Parada and Chef’s Warehouse for a spot of people watching and delicious small plates. "

Exhausted? The best place to sleep is at the newly opened Silo Boutique Hotel, built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz MOCAA. Take a look at The Silo rooms, designed as a modern African feast for the eyes.
