Twyfelfontein

Twyfelfontein has one of the largest concentrations of rock engravings in Africa. Most of these well-preserved engravings represent rhinoceros, Twyfelfontein is located close to a freshwater spring in a remote semi-arid area at the head of a valley in Damaraland.  

The world heritage site includes six painted elephants, ostrich and giraffe, as well as drawings of human and animal footprints rock shelters with motifs of human figures in red ochre. The site forms a coherent, extensive and high-quality record of ritual practices relating to San hunter-gatherer communities in this part of southern Africa over at least 2,000 years, and eloquently illustrates the links between the ritual and economic practices of hunter-gatherers.

The setting of the Twyfelfontein rock art is also authentic, as no panels have been moved or re-arranged.
