Twyfelfontein is just 70 km from Khorixas Rest Camp. This is Namibia’s very own UNESCO World Heritage Site. Twyfelfontein means “fountain of doubt” in Afrikaans as the fountain only had water at certain times. The Damara called it Uri-Ais, meaning “jumping fountain”.
This area hosts 2500 rock paintings and engravings of the San people. It is believed to date back between 1 000 and 10 000 years! The images show hunters and game, including antelope, giraffe, zebra, lion, and even seals! Although the ocean is 100 km from this spot.
Today you can visit these ancient rock art sites with a guide.
