Timeless Africa Art Experiences is a high-end boutique travel company based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Started in 2002 by Marco van Embden (WPO, Cape Town Chapter), Timeless Africa Art Experiences specializes in planning and arranging bespoke luxury art experiences and safaris in Africa for discerning guests from all over the world.
South Africa is home to some of the most ancient and beautiful art in the world as well as a host of diverse and challenging contemporary artists. Our groups explore this diversity with visits to collections in private homes, National and contemporary galleries, artists’ studios, historical monuments and natural sights which afford the guests a wonderful overview of a South African art and culture immersion.
We have over 40 years’ industry experience amongst our team.
We believe ‘Timeless’ means sharing the magic and majesty of Southern Africa through bespoke experiences created around each of our guest’s personal interests.

ACCOMMODATION

We would like to offer a choice of 4 hotels in the Rosebank area, which are roughly 20 minutes’ drive away from the Conference at the University of the Witwatersrand.

The Crowne Plaza and 54 on Bath hotels are 170 metres from each other and would be the more luxurious offerings.

The Courtyard Hotel and Holiday Inn Rosebank are 150 metres from each other and are the value accommodations.

The map below shows the locations of the 4 hotels, starting from the Crowne Plaza on the far left and ending with the Courtyard Hotel on the far right. It is 550 metres (a 7-minute walk) between the furthest points, with the 2 other hotel offerings in-between. This allows for easier transport logistics with only 2 pick-up / drop-off points for the 4 hotels – one between the Courtyard and Holiday Inn and one between the Crowne Plaza and 54 on Bath.
