WELCOME TO !Khwa ttu

!Khwa ttu, the San Education and Culture Centre, 70 km north-west of Cape Town offers you the unique experience of being introduced to the world of  the descendants of the first indigenous people of southern Africa. 

The San themselves will take you on a journey into their history, traditional knowledge, skills, languages, customs and current affairs. This enjoyable and eye-opening event will stay with you for a long time.

Besides our San-guided tour we present creative dishes in our cosy restaurant, unique San-produced items in our craft shop and the efficiency that goes along with our conference room. If you would like to stay at !Khwa ttu for a few days our guest house, bush camp and bush cottage provide appealing accommodation.

The San are looking forward to welcoming you at !Khwa ttu!

**NEWS** Accreditation Status for !Khwa ttu

A wonderful milestone in the history of !Khwa ttu has been reached!  As of 20 May 2013 !Khwa ttu can claim its accredited status with the CATHSSETA (the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sports Sector Education Authority) for the provision of Nature and Cultural Site Guide Skills Programmes.

Many were involved in this process – especially Magdalena Brörmann-Thoma and Axel Thoma.  Deep gratitude is owed to these individuals, who over several  preceding years of training had prepared an excellent standard and foundation for this status which now officially proves that !Khwa ttu has achieved a nationally accepted standard .  Many thanks also to all others who had contributed to make this happen.  An arduous process has now paid off. 

Once !Khwa ttu receives a Certificate of Accreditation it will be framed and proudly displayed.  May all training and outcomes and results do us credit.
