Tailored Art Tours

The Silo Hotel offers wonderful private art tours that allow guests the opportunity to learn about the incredible African art scene.

Widely recognised as one of the best art hotels in the world (by the likes of Forbes and The Telegraph), The Silo Hotel houses a remarkable collection. Vibrant colours shine through as the contemporary artwork and eclectic design of Liz Biden contrast Heatherwick Studio’s stark industrial architecture.

In keeping with the collections at each of The Royal Portfolio’s properties, the art reflects the unique character and mood of The Silo Hotel. Situated above Zeitz MOCAA, all of the art found within The Silo is contemporary African art – defined by Zeitz MOCAA as art created from the year 2000 onwards. By definition, therefore, the artists are young, African artists, many of whom live in Cape Town and are eager to engage with guests at the hotel.

To celebrate the incredible artists and their work, and to allow guests the opportunity to learn about and potentially meet the artists themselves, The Silo has created several private tours.


Our Resident Art Concierge will take you on an inspiring and informative art journey through the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA).

“The Museum is a public not-for-profit contemporary art museum that collects, preserves, researches and exhibits 21st-century art from Africa and its diaspora; hosts international exhibitions; develops supporting educational and enrichment programmes; encourages intercultural understanding, and guarantees access for all. The galleries, spread over several floors, are dedicated to a large cutting-edge collection gallery; exhibition galleries; and Centres for Art Education, Curatorial Training, Performative Practice, Photography, and the Moving Image.”

Tours are available Monday – Sunday between 10h00 and 17h00
*Museum closes at 18h00
*Maximum of 8 guests per tour.
