!Khwa ttu

San Spirit Shared

Tucked away on the West Coast, close to Yzerfontein and Darling, a surprise awaits you: !Khwa ttu.

!Khwa ttu’s accommodation ranges from hideaway simple and elegant farm cottages, to furnished tents with open air showers and a communal boma. Only 70 kms from Cape Town, find yourself transported to another world, as you shower under the stars or stay up all night chatting around the fire.

!Khwa ttu is home to a very different, award-winning museum, and a Nature Reserve where eland, zebra and ostriches busily repair the land. Run by, and for, the San of southern Africa – one of the last hunter-gatherer societies left on earth – there is lots to do in a day at !Khwa ttu, including:
· Intriguing San-guided tours
· Tastes of heritage with a foraging twist in a fabulous restaurant
· A shop that’s full of surprises
· Beautiful trails for bikers and hikers
· Losing yourself in the views to forever

Further afield you are perfectly positioned for day visits to the West Coast National Park (15 kms), and the West Coast Fossil Park (52 kms).

Spend the day, or stay the night – return enriched.
