Twyfelfontein Holiday

The ultimate guide to your next Twyfelfontein Holiday

Get to Know Twyfelfontein

Ranked among the richest rock-art sites in Africa, the rocky hillside of Twyfelfontein is also one of only two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Namibia.

An arid boulder-strewn valley in the heart of Damaraland, Twyfelfontein is possibly the most important of the impressive rock art sites in Namibia and was recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007. It is best known for its engravings, of which at least 5,000 have been documented, along with hundreds of paintings, some thought to be more than 5,000 years old. A wide range of wildlife is depicted on the site, including black rhinoceros and elephant, presumably both forefathers of the desert-adapted herds that still frequent Damaraland today. There are also some fine geometric engravings, as well as depictions of people hunting and dancing.
