"Twyfelfontein" Top 5 Page for this destination Skeleton Coast Tip by diageva

Skeleton Coast, Namibia: 3 reviews and 3 photos

by diageva

Twyfelfontein is for me a very TOP Namibia. The set is really breathtaking.

I went is a really beautiful day of incredible stunning blue sky that with the red of the stones of Twyfelfontein makes a unique place … there you can find the largest collections of rock engravings in Africa, so the set is complete.

You have to pay a little fee and a local guide will show you the engravings of giraffes, ostrich, zebras, rhinoceros, kudus, ... men, women ... all under this wonderful sky and over this incredible beautiful red stone that was proclaimed a national monument in 1952.

The age of rock engravings has been established to be from 2 000 to 6 000 years old while some painted pieces have been dated up to 27 000 years old

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
