Rock Art

Rock art is scattered throughout Southern and East Africa but is particularly well preserved and prolific in South Africa.

The uKhahlamba Drakensberg (in both Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Eastern Cape Province) and the highlands of the eastern Free State are particularly rich and thousands of well documented paintings and engravings are easily accessible.

The paintings, many of them made with vegetable dyes, animal blood or carbon from fires, provide a fascinating insight into the lives of the hunter-gatherer Bushmen who left these records of their lifestyles and religious beliefs of hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of years ago.

There are many other well knows sites including the Tsodilo Hills, in Botswana and the Brandburg mountain in Namibia.
