!Khwa ttu San Heritage Centre
Learn from San something of the fascinating knowledge and culture of hunter-gatherers.

Choose any of the following tours:
Tracking – reading the signs
Join this tour and realise that to catch your supper you need so much more than an understanding of how to read the tracks in the sand.
Your San guide will teach you a little of the information that can be read in the bushes, beside the water hole and in the wind.
But don’t worry, this ancient knowledge will be blended with a new world ride on! Khwa ttu’s famous, green tractor.

The Way of the San – Spirit, hunting and gathering
12,000 years ago, we were all hunter gatherers. We knew that we, the land, the plants, the animals and the elements were all connected. We understood not only how to live, but how to live well in the world.
Join this tour and discover that the more you know, the less you need.

Tea tasting – the veld pharmacy
San and other indigenous people have always understood the plants around them were so much more than simply pretty flowers or a tasty snack. 12,000 years ago, we were all hunter-gatherers. Re-discover some of the powerful knowledge you have lost – what to use to win a wife, or heal a wound, or keep you alive on the long journey ahead. Try our memorable, health-giving tea and if lucky, hear a story in |Xung.

First People – food from the ancestors
