Rock Art Walk
Departure from Sani Lodge (8.15 am)
We meet in near reception ten minutes prior to departure for a quick briefing and introduction to your guide.
This is a moderate difficulty hike of around 14km with an altitude gain of around 250m. We take it slow, with lots of information stops and enjoyment of the surrounds. As well as experts on rock art, our guides also have a great knowledge of the mountains. Correct equipment is essential (see kit list).
Unlike many other rock art sites, we visit 3 separate panels within a 1km radius, all of which are viewed as the artist left them, no cages, no fences!! The panels are quite different and the main panel is quite extraordinary!!
Our guides often use a different route to return, and you should be back at Sani Lodge around 3.30 – 4.30pm depending on the pace of the group.
Sadly, the Drakensberg Bushmen who made these paintings are no more. Instead, we have partnered with the ‡Khomani Bushmen of the Kalahari to allow ancient rock art bring modern benefits. A portion of your payment goes towards an eduicational program aimed at preserving the ‡Khomani language of N/u. We also support ‡Khomani crafters who make souvenir items which you receive at the end of the hike.
