Explore the !Khwa ttu San Centre which is a one hour drive from Cape Town on the stunning West Coast.' The San and the Khoekhoe peoples are aboriginals to southern Africa. The Khoekhoe migrated into the country about 2,500 ' 2,000 years ago, occupying coastal areas, the southern Cape, and the major rivers, such as the Orange River (called !Garib). They may have made friends with the San hunters in some cases, but the San also appear to have withdrawn to the mountains and deserts of South Africa.
The !Khwa ttu San Centre is situated on a low hill overlooking the Yzerfontein coast line where we ride on an excellent mountain bike trail.' The trail is purpose-build and depending on your preference, it can be a leisurely ride or quite challenging which runs through beautiful and typical West Coast scenery and there are amazing views of the ocean.
After your ride, enjoy a hearty lunch at !Khwa ttu's restaurant. Set out on a walk with your San guide who will share insights into the culture. Enjoy demonstrations of tracking ' a skill San are particularly good at, shooting practice (with a bow and arrow of course), 'gathering' scents and knowledge in their medicinal garden.
Visit a replica San village, where a bow and arrow takes a whole new meaning in the game of love.' After the walk, venture into the art gallery, a photo exhibition and the emerging museum.' !Khwa ttu offers San artists and craftsmen of Southern Africa an attractive outlet for their products.
