We went early during a very hot spell (35 degrees) and only did a small part of the trail to manage the energy our toddler, small baby and their grandparents. Even so we thoroughly enjoyed the walk. The trail is fairly easy, very little clambering...More

Stop off at the Travellers Rest, follow the easily marked route and take in the marvel of this artwork. Stunning. Such a privilege. Then back to the cafe for a fab iced rooibos - tea and apple juice mix.

We visited the Rock Art Trail and Travellers Rest in November 2016. I was completely blown away by the quality of the rock art, having been disappointed in the past with other Rock Art (Bushman painting) sites, where you really had to use your imagination....More

An absolute, unexpected highlight! The rock art is an undescribable treasue, the walk is an experience on its own and doable even with no touring experience. The trail is easy to follow and has a treaure-hunt feel to it.

The walk is not too difficult and plan on spending at last two hours to really see all of the art. Go early in the morning or late in the afternoon for the full effect. Bring a bottle of water per person.

At the Traveller's Rest restaurant/shop. There's a sign on the road - and you park your car and walk from there.

The Rock Art Trail costs R40 per person - that's three Euros, I think. It is a 5 kilometer walk-it-yourself, no guides involved, but easy to follow with the provided route & info map, easy to walk (5 kilometers back, too... More
