Cool petroglyphs. It's pretty remote, and I'm not sure it warrants a special side trip, but worth seeing if you can reasonably fit it in on the way to another destination.

Step back into history at this UNESCO World Heritage site. Bring a decent camera to capture ancient rock carvings, paintings, and don't forget to think what life was like when those graphics were made. The stark, harsh conditions surrounding Twyfelfontein makes me wonder how humans...More

This place is Unesco world heritage and is worth a visit. You go in the park with a guide. It was interesting to see the beautiful rock paintings.

Hi Laryssa, 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.
