!Khwa ttu San Culture Centre, Western Cape
Captivating culture, heritage, knowledge
The !Khwa ttu San Culture and Education Centre, the only San-owned and operated cultural centre, offers a fascinating insight into the culture and history of the San Community.
Guests are offered a choice of two 90-minute tours with a San guide; these tours are conducted either on foot or by safari vehicle.
- a. The Hunting Trail tour provides insight into the San's oral and spiritual heritage, how they track animals, as well as a visit to a replica San village.
- b. On the Gathering Trail guests experience survival skills and learn more about the San's use of traditional and medicinal plants.
After their tour, guests are urged to visit the exhibition centre where provocative photographs record the San's history of dispossession and dehumanisation.
!Khwa ttu has a rustic farmhouse restaurant producing wholesome, freshly prepared food, and a gift shop specialising in arts and crafts produced by the San.
