Ellerman House Offers The World’s Most Expensive Safari Experience

One of the most stunning hotels in all of Africa, Ellerman House is a gorgeous Edwardian-style property overlooking Cape Town’s blissful Bantry Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, a five star boutique hotel that could easily charm you with its amazing exterior, luxurious amenities, breathtaking views and world class service. But.. that’s not all this lavish hotel has to offer.

Guests may now opt for the most expensive experience in Africa, the diamond safari of a lifetime, which takes them to the mineral-rich west coast and costs exactly $16,000! For that hefty sum you’ll get to dive into the depths of the ocean, accompanied by professional divers, where the nutrient-rich Benguela current flows in a northerly direction and you could discover your very own diamond.

Of course, there’s no promise you’ll find a diamond that’s at least as valuable as this unique experience, but the precious stone you’ll find might prove to be a one of a kind souvenir and who knows? Maybe it will be part of a romantic proposal.

This incredible package is actually a day-long excursion, with guests transferred by private jet to Port Nollot, picked in a luxurious limousine and dropped at a luxury villa in Ellerman House when it’s all over. At the end of the day the hotel’s “signature Dom Perignon Experience”, complemented by a bento box-style dinner prepared by the executive chef, will make for an unforgettable evening.

If you can afford spending $16,000 to dive for diamonds, you may actually head for South Africa to try this out starting today, provided that weather conditions are appropriate. One way or another, this unique trip will surely be a great story to tell your friends or family. Better yet, you could take them along for the ride.
