Franschhoek’s original brandy distillery, Galleria Gibello, is the new home to wildlife photographer Caroline Gibello’s iconic images of Africa.

This unique and inspirational space has been dusted out and lovingly refurbished. On the main road, beneath wooden rafters and old Oaks is a real time journal of Caroline's travels throughout the African continent and other far off destinations. Inspired by the adventure of life, Caroline’s work conveys a strong sense of beauty and reverence for spirit: images that bear witness to the multi-colours, textures and tapestries of the world in which we live.

At the root of all Caroline’s adventures is mystery and it is this which inspires the freedom of her work - a freedom which allows for an image to reveal itself in whatever light and composition her creative eye defines. This quiet surrender, rather than active pursuit, emanates a genuineness and gentleness from her images. Her enduring affinity to Africa, and her insatiable thirst for travel, has led to a body of work imbued with a quiet, serene essence and deep appreciation for our natural world. Her photographic prints, with their signature sun bleached palate and soft toned hues continue to inspire patrons from all corners of the globe.

Galleria Gibello is Caroline’s unique and creative way of expressing her innate appreciation for the beauty of our planet. In sharing her images, she hopes to contribute to the critical shift in consciousness around the preservation and conservation of our home. Her photographs are all testament to a deep-rooted reverence for our natural world and her beloved Africa.

At Galleria Gibello, Caroline's Fine Art Photography is complimented by an eclectic mix of other artworks - sculpture, drawing, painting - by established South African artists, Heike Allerton-Davies, Sam Allerton and Elsabe Milandri.

Delicious coffee and freshly baked treats are on offer too, and a wonderful book lounge replete with African journals and photographic adventures is a sure source of inspiration.

Galleria Gibello is a gorgeous and imaginative space in the beautiful wine valley of Franschhoek. Adventure, passion, mystery and travel all await…
