I enjoyed the surroundings, the atmosphere, the silence and the wind - but most of all the fact that one can hear nature around you while sleeping in the tent. I luv the shower room - I would just like more bushes etc so that it really feels like bush! :-)

Lovely place with a amazing view. Main building and and restaurant great! We had a lovely breakfast. We stayed in the bush camp, which is a bit uncomfortable, but still fun to be totally alone in nature.

Wonderful Sunday spent on the farm! There are numerous trails; walking and bicycle that vary from 1km to 30km. I chose the 10km bicycle trail, where you cycle on the farm. (30km trail you cycle on and off the farm) What beautiful views and a surprise boma near the top! Nice idea to pack a backpack with some goodies and... More

I organised a get together for a couple of friends of mine and have always passed Khwa ttu on my way to Langebaan. A couple of colleagues at work recommended it and what a awesome setting for a bush camp. Everything was perfect from the service, food, amenities to the very big smiles that greeted us over a awesome breakfast.... More

The accommodation was super. The service and the people, excellent. The food was delicious. The tour was so professional and natural. I didn't feel like they were reading off script but rather that they were passionate about it all. I would recommend this place for a weekend away close to Cape Town for locals and if you can stay longer,... More

My wife and I along with three of our friends spent the last two days camping in Khwa Ttu's amazing bush lodge, and to say we were impressed with everything would be an understatement. Everything from the booking to the maintenance and management was absolutely outstanding. The tour guides were wonderful as well as expert in their subject, the staff... More

There was nothing available from the items offered on the menu - the staff did not even to bother to check whether there had been a delivery that week. - We left hungry and thirsty.

Eerstens, ek het in Namibie groot geword maar bly nou in Noord Ierland. Enige besoek en toer deur die spesiale plek vul my met heimwee en nederigheid. I have been back more than once and have brought friends to experience this unique environment but above all to have a few minutes with the people that run the place. I wish... More

We stayed in Jakkalsfontein and enjoyed our breakfasts and lunches in !Khwa ttu very much. High quality food and service in nice surroundings. Our kids loved the morning walks and bush experiences. Highlight of the establishment was the intelligent and impeccable service of a waiter called Castro. Highly recommendable.

This was a nice breakaway in the nature surrounded by bush, I would surely come back with friends. Only disruption was the noise of the vehicles on the WC road, but we enjoyed our stay.
