Launch of the Twee Rivieren (Khomani San) Interpretive Centre – Northern Cape Province

​On 19 July 2023, the Minister of Tourism Patricia de Lille will launch the Twee Rivieren (±Khomani San) Interpretive Centre at the SANParks’ Transfrontier Park in the Northern Cape Province.

The Twee Rivieren (±Khomani San) Interpretive Centre is a collaborative initiative between the Department of Tourism and SANParks to enhance the visitor experience at the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park World Heritage Site. The Department of Tourism invested R3.5 million into enhancing the site’s infrastructure to ensure that the Centre offers an exceptional demonstration of the ±Khomani San heritage through interactive exhibitions and presentations.

The Department of Tourism invites you to join us as we launch this world class facility and showcase its cultural and natural value. The ±Khomani Landscape’s rich history and heritage is among South Africa’s unique cultural offerings making it a must-see destination and experience for all visitors.

Minister Patricia de Lille will also hand over certificates to tour guides recently trained by the Department of Tourism at a tour guide certification ceremony as part of the Twee Rivieren (±Khomani San) Interpretive Centre launch.

The Northern Cape Province experience will commence with a visit to the Riemvasmaak community in honour of former President Nelson Mandela’s Birthday, and his contribution towards peace and freedom. Minister Patricia de Lille and MEC for Economic Development and Tourism, Abraham Vosloo will be making a donation to the community of Riemvasmaak as part of Mandela Day activities at the Riemvasmaak Primary School.
