New Find at Blombos Cave

A new archelogical find has been found at Blombos Cave, situated in a limestone cliff near Still Bay in the Southern Cape.

An ancient paint factory 100,000 years old gives insight into ancient beauty rituals and lets us modern day humans explore our roots.

Archelogists who are visiting the area can find some 'gem' accommodation and we'll show you where.

On your way from Cape Town, stay at De Hoop Nature Reserve 'the jewel of the Western Cape', where there is something for everyone:
While you are there, you can see southern right whales that come specifically to these shores to breed.

Explore the natural wonders on the area & book your place with Elegant Places.
