DELAIRE GRAFF ESTATE
THE JEWEL OF THE CAPE WINELANDS
This dramatic, steep-sided landscape of mountains, vineyards and fynbox at the southern tip of Africa has drawn its fair share of pioneers and visionaries.
Laurence Graff, an avid collector of modern and contemporary art, a world leader within the diamond industry and an equally devoted philanthropist, opened the doors of Delaire Graff Estate to celebrate the beauty of Africa. In his love for this part of the world, Graff established the FACET Foundation (For Africa’s Children Every Time) that is designed to support the education, health and well-being of the people of Sub-Saharan Africa from where Graff sources many beautiful stones.
LA CLÉ DES MONTAGNES
THE KEY TO THE MOUNTAINS
Today, Franschhoek is the gourmet capital of the continent, boasting some of the world’s best restaurants and wine estates. But it wasn’t so long ago that herds of elephants roamed here.
Michael Pawlowski, a German international entrepreneur, fell in love with Franschhoek and decided to call it home. He bought two farms on the edge of the village, developing the first into villas and later converting his family home into a bespoke experience which celebrates life in Franschhoek. He is a foundation sponsor of the Kusasa Project, a local community organisation that serves 1 500 children in five local schools, utilising the services of up to 60 volunteers and operating both in-school and afterschool programmes.
KWANDWE PRIVATE GAME RESERVE
A CONSERVATION SUCCESS STORY
Kwandwe lies at the nexus of South Africa’s renowned natural heritage. Seven of the country’s eight biomes meet in the Eastern Cape province, and Kwandwe is a pivotal junction.
The Chouest family, from one of the southern states of the USA, were inspired by the eco-tourism model within the protected Kwandwe Reserve. Being hands-on conservationists, they were drawn to a destination where they could have an impact on protecting endangered species, growing the area of protected wilderness and positively influencing and uplifting the social landscape of the region through the Ubunye Foundation, the soul of Kwandwe.
