  • Khoisan cultural centre with visitor involvement. Take a step into the lives of the bushmen that live their unique way of life in a changing world. Known for their traditional herbs the world over the indigenous gardens supply herbal medications and tea that the brave can sample. Not far from Cape Town and worth a visit. It is getting more popular so call to secure a booking.
  • We had a delicious lunch here after some of the group had enjoyed one of the mountain bike trails. Reasonably priced and cosy restaurant with a . lovely fire and Heinrich was very helpful and informative about the San people, their language and his ancestors. We will definitely come again and it would be nice to try some of the accommodation on offer
  • If you're interested in San (Bushmen) culture this is a great place to visit. There's a reconstructed village with your guides who explain many aspects of the traditional lifestyle and culture. Fire making and jewelry (ostrich shell) making demonstrations. Guides patiently try to teach various 'click sounds' of the San language. Very nice gift shop. Highly recommend visiting and supporting this endeavor.
  • Actually very disappointed. Places like this that rely on a good image and word of mouth should really be more professional and more helpful. The waiter was not at all helpful and scared of the cold. Sorry to say that I won't be going back or taking friends there anytime soon. Really sad as I think there's a lot of history to explore ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”
  • Excellent food and reasonably priced. Good service. Dirt road of 1.4 km between highway and restaurant ok in dry weather.
