About !Khwa ttu
!Khwa ttu offers you the unique experience of being introduced to the world of the San (in the passed called Bushmen). The Centre is housed within a series of lovingly restored old West Coast farm buildings whilst the surrounding area teems with an abundance of birdlife, game and fynbos and stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain.
The San are descendants of an ancient hunter-gathering people, who have encountered dispossession of their territories, discrimination and poverty. Yet, !Khwa ttu is not a monument to suffering or misery. It is a living celebration of past and present San culture; an uplifting and inspirational experience.
