Listed as the country's first World Heritage Site, Twyfelfontein contains peculiar rock engravings, petroglyphs, and paintings. Inhabited for more than 6,000 years, the site provided a home for hunter-gatherer tribes that probably conducted shamanistic rituals at this location--their imagery and pictograms remain scattered about. As you explore the protected site, observe the diverse rock art that portrays wild animals, footprints, and symbols of an ancient belief system.

A nice walk up to the mountain where the engravings are. Really enjoyed seeing apart of the heritage of the area. more »
The animal carvings on the rocks were interesting and the guide was informative. As will need to climb over some of the rocks, it is important to wear shoes with good grip. more »
Loved our guide for the hike (I think it was Dion). The cravings have lasted for thousands of years and it’s incredible to see them in person. Plus the surrounding scenery is gorgeous.
Incredible site, well worth visiting.
