4th Day – !Khwa ttu – San Culture and Education Centre

  • The San are one of the last hunter-gatherer societies left on earth. The story of the San is one that many people across the world might not know, but it is one that everyone will recognise. It is the story of humankind. At !Khwa ttu, the San tell this story, in their own words.
  • Discover the San heritage on a guided tour, hear the story of human origins, learn how to read tracks in the sand and re-discover some of the powerful knowledge of the bush pharmacy.
  • Explore the exhibition at the new museum or go on a ride on a mountain bike trail.
  • The !Khwa ttu restaurant offers a bistro-style menu with freshly prepared and locally sourced food.

And there is much more to explore and experience! Just ask us for suggestions.

Darling is the ideal hub to discover the hidden gems on the West Coast set in one of the world’s smallest but also richest Floral Kingdoms!

Visit the local shops and tasting rooms for toffees and caramels, traditional rusks, olives, beers and wines.

Not to forget our very own Pieter-Dirk Uys at Evita se Perron, the Swartland Birding Route, the West Coast Fossil Park, kite surfing in Langebaan, horseback riding, the stunning wildflowers in August and September, festivals and events throughout the year, art galleries and a walk on the 16 mile beach in Yzerfontein.
