About us

Both born and raised in the Netherlands with a passion for travel and Africa we always talked and dreamed about moving abroad.

No matter where we traveled, South Africa was always in our mind and hearts. We kept coming back and every time this beautiful country with breathtaking nature, friendly people and lots more, made us feel at home!

After years of dreaming living in South Africa became a reality and in September 2015 we moved, swopped our work suites for shorts and are building a different quality of life, time to live our African Dream!

African Tulip Guesthouse was born and is creating memories and making friends since January 2016!

The concept of African Tulip Guesthouse is simple.

Let our guests make themselves at home and experience the Witzenberg Valley and surroundings in the Cape Winelands to the fullest.

Our location is an ideal base for all your activities.

African Tulip is situated on walking distance of the historic town center. Close to all the restaurants and shops. Easy access to the premises with off street parking.

We want to be your host for the Cape Winelands Experience and beyond which starts and ends at African Tulip Guesthouse.

We are happy to share our passion for this beautiful country, meet many new people and are enjoying outdoor living and all the experiences that make South Africa such a special place.

We really look forward to meet you in Tulbagh!

Come and make yourself at home!

Frank & Elise van Holten
