Welgelegen: A Place to Call Home

25 Oct

In Cape Town I was farther from home than I had ever been in my life. That made me appreciate my boutique hotel, Welgelegen, all the more. I commend my safari company, Africa Adventure Consultants, for listening to my preferences for a quiet and homey place to stay. They certainly found it here. It was located in the quiet and safe neighborhood of Gardens near Kloof Street. They had resident tourist agents who could arrange tours. My third day there they arranged for my own private tour of the Cape Flats townships and the wine country near Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Every morning I could choose breakfast items from a buffet in addition to ordering from the kitchen. I also had a view of Lion’s Head from my window. Really I could not have asked for a better accommodation.

    What a beautiful accommodation, Rosemarie. The photos clearly reveal why you felt so comfortable and consoled there. What is the story behind the art work over the dining table?

      I wish I knew. They are obviously pregnant bellies, so it might have something to do with fertility.

      It was a truly beautiful and comfortable place to stay before I got to the primitive camping part of my safari.
