!Khwa ttu is a San Heritage Centre which is located near Yzerfontein. At !Khwa ttu San culture ancient and recent history is presented through a series of exhibitions, videos and presentations.
!Khwa ttu provides a platform for contemporary San to share and explore their history and culture with both San community members and local and international visitors. The historical exhibitions highlight the continuity of San history and its links to human origins, issues of colonial genocide and discrimination against them. The community section deals with San resilience and recent development initiatives of the various San communities in southern Africa. In the ‘Way of the San’ building, a day in the ‘traditional’ life of the Kalahari San is illustrated. The exhibitions and guided experiences engage body and senses as much as the mind and demonstrate traditional lifestyles, culture and heritage, and ancient survival skills of the San. Visitors can also take a drive in an open vehicle past zebra, springbok and other wildlife, through unspoilt fynbos, to a replica San village.
