Ellerman House is an historical landmark situated on the most spectacular site on Kloof Road in the premier Cape Town suburb of Bantry Bay.

Ellerman House is within walking distance of the famous Clifton Beach, ten minutes from the centre of Cape Town and the bustling V&A Waterfront - departure point to Robben Island - and a mere 45 minutes from the heart of the Cape Winelands.


Of all the countries on the continent, South Africa is the most diverse in terms of its territory. It ranges from rolling hills to wide open savannah to the Kalahari Desert to the high peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains. Lots of people visit South Africa to go on safari, though, since it’s got two of the world’s most famous wildlife reserves: the Kruger and the Kalahari Gemsbok National Parks.

Cape Town - a city with a diverse range of attractions, sights and activities to offer. From lavish and luxurious to back-packing on a budget, Cape Town has something for everyone. From the landmark beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay to the vibrant V&A Waterfront and Cape Town city centre and the award winning wine farms of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek - time spent in Cape Town will not be forgotten.
