“Good day or overnight trip from Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

More upmarket than I'd guessed though friendly and accessible, had a great lunch with good wine and a tour by a San guide of traditional skills and plants. Nice photo exhibit at the time also. You get good views down the coast to Table Mountain so its worth a hike up through the game farm if you visit. About 45mins to 1 hour drive from central Cape Town, so could have done it in a day but we got some cottage accommodation which was a decent self catering rustic affair.

“Good team building week-end”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We spent the week-end at !Khwa ttu Bush Camp, from Friday to Sunday & what a pleasant expierence it was, much more than what we expected, Solar powered heated water in the open air showers. We had the whole camp of 5 x 4 sleepers, fully made up beds, with a little light as well. A boma with a kitchen & gas stove, very rustic but perfect for the bush with a difference. Had a good time around the fire singing & lots of laughter. We also did the San tour very informative, We will be going back again. Thanks !Khwa ttu. Austrian Premix Baking

“Friendly and intresting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The visit was informative (you learn about the San people)but there was not a lot happening there. To me more a place to just walk and sit and drink tea with a nice view and relax. Very friendly all the way round. We did not take the tour as it takes about 90 minutes- which sounded intresting.
