What a great place. There are thousands of San petroglyphs in this valley and you short tour will take you around a few of them. I had an excellent guide who showed how the images were used, from shamanic rites (lion man) through maps to...More
We like rock art and we've seen quite a lot of it all over the world. This is one we add to the top list. The walk to it is in an amazing scenery. The guide was very professional. Please keep in mind to bring...More
An interesting attraction, but quite a drive from most other sights in the country, accessible by very bumpy dirt roads. I was impressed with the carvings... readily distinguishable and lots of them to see. The “long” tour lasted about 45 min, traversing uneven ground and...More
Really enjoyed seeing the paintings and learning a little about the history.
Just want to add as others have pointed out, that importantly this walk is not suitable for everyone. We did not realize until the last minute that the walk is quite long, and...More
You arrive and park, pay a small entrance fee, and you can only go in with a guide. It is well worth stopping to look at the ancient bushman engravings, mainly of animals, and thought to be between 2000 and 6000 years old.
We called in here on our way up to Doro Nawas.
The entrance fee was very modest compared to the fees charged by local lodges who organise trips to Twfelfontein.
You join a small group of other visitors and together with a local guide you...More
The rock paintings are definitely worth the trip. You will be climbing some stairs and some rock formations to see these amazing carvings but it is well worth the hour of your time to see these. It is unbelievable that they are 2000-6000 years old...More
At the time of year we were there in November it was really hot so would recommend a bottle of water with you and a hat with high factor sun cream there is very little opportunity of shade. You need to be physically able this...More
Travelling independently meant we arrived in our car and were immediately harassed by an unofficial car park attendant demanding money. Having got rid of him we then went to the centre to make use of the toilets but they we just unusable - very poor...More
A walk of about an hour through ancient rock paintings. Quite interesting, but a rough walk, at times clambering over rocks, with a climb. We visited mid afternoon and it was Very hot. Thank goodness we had hats, sunglasses and water with us.
I'm afraid that I can't be completely reassuring, although the definitive answer may be dependent upon the weather. I recall a bumpy unpaved road from the main highway (C-39?) to Twyfelfontein, which wouldn't be a... More
I'm afraid that I can't be completely reassuring, although the definitive answer may be dependent upon the weather. I recall a bumpy unpaved road from the main highway (C-39?) to Twyfelfontein, which wouldn't be a comfortable drive in a lightweight car, but it should be passable. But I also recall an area of standing water that crossed the entire width of the roadway leading to Twyfelfontein. With a 4 wheel drive safari vehicle, we got through it with ease, but a small sedan ahead of us was stopped, unable or unwilling to take the risk of attempting the crossing.

I can't remember the exact opening time, the staff at !Dornawas indicated it was open at 8:30 (as I remember it) it's really laid back and they have a lot of guides. It's completely safe as a location and tour.
