Any seasoned traveller will tell you that local knowledge can make the difference between a good trip and an unforgettable one. The most beautiful places to watch the sunset, what time to hit the farmer’s market, the location of the quietest beaches and where to find the best burger in town are the sort of details that can really elevate the experience of exploring a new city.

There is no better way to get under the skin of a destination than by tapping into the expertise of local residents, which is why our concierge team at Ellerman House is headed up by a born-and-bred Capetonian. Yassir Ebrahim became part of our family at the beginning of 2020 and loves nothing more than putting together tailor-made itineraries that make the most of Cape Town’s hidden gems.

Depending on the time available and your particular interests, Yassir might arrange days out in the Cape Winelands sampling award-winning vintages, a sunny morning paddle-boarding with the penguins or a private tour of Africa’s largest contemporary art collection – all experiences to which guests are chauffeur-driven in a luxury vehicle by our registered tour guide.

Food is also an important part of the scene here and no visit to Cape Town is complete without a taste of its dynamic culinary offering. From fine dining in some of the best restaurants in the world to the irresistible energy of locals-only hangouts, Yassir and his team of food fanatics will make it happen for you. A carefully-curated, up-to-date list of our favourite spots to drink or dine is also available on request.
