Spring is in the air
It is spring & !Khwa ttu is covered with cast carpets of white, yellow, violet & orange blossoms. Spring is the season for nature lovers in the Western Cape. If you've never had the change to experience the flowers of the West Coast, pack the car & head for nature's great displays. Better still, leave the car & explore on our hiking and mountain-biking routes. !Khwa ttu is only a stone's throw away from one of the best flower-viewing hotspots in the Cape Region, namely Postberg in the West Coast National Park. Before you return, be sure to visit our brand new Museum Dream and photographic exhibition, Traces and Tracks.

Feedback from the ||Kabbo Academy
With but 6 weeks of training remaining for the 2015 intake, the classroom becomes a beehive, humming with activity to complete portfolios, attend the last workshops & prepare for the crucial practical nature guiding assessments. This frenzied activity is interspersed, fortunately, by wonderful opportunities providing relief, such as nature walks & MTB events. The sweet reward at the end will be to meet all requirements & graduate on 30 October.
Traces & Tracks Launch @ !Khwa ttu
A Must See

In conjunction we will also be launching on the 31st October the Museum Dream Exhibition, the culmination of a program focusing on a long held dream of the San to share their history from their perspective. This exhibition is a thought-provoking taste of what !Khwa ttu intends to materialise, namely a San museum and digital archive as a form of restitution for the First People of our land. We invite you to join us afterwards for a light lunch and Ormonde wine.
