This is a UNESCO World Heritage site with one of the largest concentrations of petroglyphs, i.e. rock engravings in Africa. The landscape itself is amazing, incredibly arid, with rocks carved into incredible formations by the wind over millenia. It's a place that feels like you went back in time 10,000 years.

Travel Information

Getting there is an adventure all its own, this is a remote location! There are a couple of (pricey) camps to stay within 10km of the site, but the drive from the nearest town (Khorixas) takes about 90 mins and is a stunning route in itself. Be aware the C39 and D2612 roads from Khorixas are gravel and the last part (D3254/3214) is sand!
