The restaurant was worth a visit twice in one week. A gem with fantastic fresh South African food, wine, coffee, friendly staff and a GREAT chef. The food was fresh, fast and and very tasty but best of all Very Well Priced. We had to go back to get more. Cape winter dining next to a fireplace. No one should drive pass this gem. #SomebodyfeedPhil should vist !Khwa ttu to show the world a true South African dining experience.

As before and always we had an absolute great and fantastic 2 night stay at the bush camp at KhwaTu. The staff and management, the location and the food are very very good. Highly recommended. And we already booked our next stay for August :-))

My family and I enjoyed our stay in the bush camps. That was super amazing and relaxing under our tents in the middle of nowhere. It was an experience we are prepared to do again.
The breakfast in the morning was awesome, the staff was helpful and very welcoming. Especially Baby Rose.

Hello again. We had once again an exceptional and very positive experience at !KTuu for a 2 night stay. We were as always totally happy there with all staff members, supervisors and the management in all service areas.
We very unfortunately faced with a tragic incident with our dog on the main road next to !KTtu and the staff members went out of their way to help us with available vets in the area. We will be back very soon....maybe and hopefully with our dog Tyger who hopefully will be by then fully recovered. t&s

We arrived late and left early, so we did not get a chance to enjoy one of the tours, but the staff took exceptional care of us, arranging for a delicious later dinner (Venison burgers and Slow beer), torches for loadshedding, fire starters and an extra mattress at short notice and an amazing breakfast (again, managed during loadshedding - all 3 of us ordered different meals and they were all superb). What a great stay-over. We are looking forward to returning for another delicious meal and hopefully to join some of the tours. Don't forget to brink your binoculars for spotting game from the sunset deck!

What an awesome insight into the life of the "Bushmen". The stories of interaction with nature is mind boggling. These people lived in total symbiosis with their environment. Never over utilising it, yet never going hungry. The restaurant however is a pleasant setting in an old farmhouse with wesome tasting food such as burgers (not your boring McDonald's) roosterkoek, springbok and more. A taste sensation!
Definitely worth the visit. Like the sign says, come in and be surprised!

What a beautiful place to visit. The staff at !Khwa ttu was exceptional and responsive, especially Klaas, William and Babe Rose. The museum and the delicious food in the restaurant were a highlight for my family.

We spent a night in one of the Bush Lodges at !Khwa ttu. Welcomed by a warm letter from 'baby rose' in the bush lodge was a nice touch. What didnt work for us was that the electric sockets were unusable, the light outside didnt work, the zip on the tent was broken and the velcro on the tent kept us awake. These are small issues that are easy to correct and we look forward to returning.

We have a fair knowledge of the San, especially their Rock Art, but our stay at !Khwa ttu opened a whole new and fascinating window into the history, life, skills and culture of this group of people -- something that more South Africans should become acquainted with
