You can crown your vacation in Cape Town with an unforgettable day on the west coast near the Namibian border: with a Benguela Diamond Safari. Whether you are staying in Ellerman House or in another hotel in the “Mother City”, we personally pick you up from your accommodation with a limousine and then fly you in a comfortable, safe private plane to Port Nolloth. After you have enjoyed the first stage of your adventure in the air, it continues on the water where you follow our diamond diver into the depths or observe him bringing up precious gemstones. Later that same day you return to Cape Town by private plane. Whether in the air, on land, or on the water – we take care of the details, ensuring that all you ever need to do is enjoy the time you spend with us to the utmost.
Not only our beach villa, with its luxurious maritime-themed design, offers you an atmosphere in which you can lean back and relax at any time thanks to our attentive service personnel. You are also treated to the authentic taste of the west coast and a variety of South African flavors by our private chef. While a soft breeze blows through your hair on the terrace, enjoy seafood of excellent quality and freshly caught seasonal fish. To complement each course we serve you South African wines from the wine cellar at Ellerman House in Cape Town.
By mining our own diamonds we fill a major market gap in a time in which transparency has become of the utmost importance. Our diamonds do not come from a diamond mine in South Africa, but from the ocean. Their origin is immediately recognizable and at the same time a guarantee of fair working conditions.
Nowhere else in the world are such large numbers of gemstones mined than on the African continent. In the case of diamonds, South Africa is one of the leading producers. In 1905 the largest rough diamond ever found worldwide, with a weight of 3,106 ct, was discovered in a diamond mine in South Africa.
