Why was Twyfelfontein declared a national heritage site?

  • Twyfelfontein is famous for its many San (Bushmen) rock paintings and rock engravings (Petroglyphs), of which 2500 have been counted.
  • The valley was designated a national monument in 1952 to combat the widespread theft of rock engravings. The paintings/engravings are only accessible with the assistance of a local guide.
  • Twyfelfontein was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007.
