We pride ourselves that Anton Smit, the world-renowned South African sculptor, was one of the first residents at the Aqua Vista Mountain Estate.
If there’s a reason to make Aqua Vista Mountain Estate a destination of choice (and there are many) then it will be that the Anton Smit Sculpture Park and Gallery is adjacent to the Aqua Vista Mountain Estate’s main entrance. In 2003, Anton Smit opened his own sculpture garden, the Anton Smit Sculpture Park, a unique outdoor exhibition that is a destination of creativity attracting tourists and art buyers locally and internationally.
Against the backdrop of natural stone formations, manicured lawns and succulent vegetation, the garden provides a picturesque environment to view the expansive collection of monumental sculptures and exhibitions, including an exquisite Art Café. Being the only coffee shop of its kind in this vicinity, this is where coffee lovers can savour the ultimate in coffee while tantalising their taste buds with a range of exquisite freshly baked cakes and mouth-watering scones.
Don’t forget to take a stroll in the Art Café shop where you can view and purchase an array of exclusive gifts and souvenirs such as specially designed Anton Smit printed t-shirts, scatter cushions, wine and even delicious single-origin coffees from all different parts of the continent.
The Anton Smit Sculpture Park really expands the traditional concept of an art venue, ensuring a truly unique and inspiring experience right here on the Aqua Vista Mountain Estate’s doorstep.
