As the tours start at sunset the time varies according to the season, lasting approximately 90 minutes. Entrance fee is R200 p.p. Bookings must be made in advance by SMS or email. It is possible to visit the gardens during the daytime at R50 p.p. by contacting Isak Williams during office hours or Rossetta Woolf at weekends after 11am. Important note: these visits do not include entrance to the Art House and will not be conducted by Hennie Boshoff.No visit to Prince Albert will be complete without viewing the stunning and controversial drums outside the Thusong Centre, which Boshoff and his team created.

Hennie Boshoff died at Villa Kruger on the 16th of November.

Therefore there will be no more Art After Dark tours.

The reviews below are a fitting tribute to the success and impact of his unique and magical One Man Show.

the highlight of my trip
Apr 2017 • Solo
after i was done with the KKNK in oudtshoorn, i came accross a pamphlet promoting art after dark. i thought this was the perfect way to end my trip - and i was curios. What this artist has created here is unlike anything i have encountered in my life. he takes you on a magical journey, and then leaves you feeling like you are in another world. everyone must see this.

A visit to Villa Kruger's Art after Dark is to be seen to be believed.Hennie's work with renowned artists from all over the world is second to none.If you visit the Karoo attending this show should be a priority.

A very interesting evening which really made the trip to Prince Albert worthwhile. The art is beautiful and the stories around the art really got me thinking. I would recommend it to anyone open minded or curious or interested in art

I dont normally write reviews, but somehow the little town of Prince Albert left it's mark.
Our day started by stopping off for quick lunch at the Prickly Pear, all I CAN SAY IS AMAZING FANTASTIC FOOD. Next stop ......Villa Kruger for the After Dark Tour. It was absolutely worth it!!!!!!! Amazing work by the artist Hennie Boshoff, hats of to you , you have really opened my eyes. Myself and my wife will most certainly be back for a second visit.
All the best

This was my first visit. I must say it will most definately not be my last visit. Firstly to Hennie, Rossetta and Izak thank you for the experience. .
Izak your passion and love truly reflects in the garden, you have done an amazing job there.
Hennie is most definately an artist who is rare, and one who does so with visual distinction is rarer still. Hennie's beguiling, challenging art tour is the true complexity of such an achievement. Parasitical, edgy, irreverent and infatuated, it nonetheless has an exquisite dexterity and emotional intensity that makes it much more than simply a remarkable mirror of its time, although it is that, too.
Can't wait for my next visit !!!!!!!!!!!

Unique, magnificent

What Hennie Boshoff has achieved is unbelievable.His show is something all visitors should attend. He is dynamic, charismatic and the tour he takes you on is a marvelous trip to another world.The art display, which includes work by himself snd the lovely Roseta, as well as international artists is phenomenal.It gave me great pleasure to see work he did with black and local KhoiSan people, the only place in town that pays attention to this neglected part of our culture was of special importance. Be sure to also view the drums he and his KhoiSan team did, outside the Municipality building, again striking because they are the only drums in town to portray the KhoiSan history.
