Last week the Pelicans and the Louries explored the way of life of the San and the Khoi at the Iziko Museum in Cape Town. Did you know that “Iziko” is an isiXhosa word, meaning “a hearth”? The hearth of a typical African home is usually found in a central place in the home. Thus Iziko symbolises a hub of cultural activity and a central place for gathering together and learning about South Africa’s diverse heritage.
After our lesson, we were able to explore other areas of the museum. We enjoyed our lunch under the trees in the Gardens.
