About Twyfelfontein

Twyfelfontein is a rocky site situated in the Kunene Region of north western Namibia. It is a historic area, complete with rock carvings dating back to 1000 AD. It is believed that the carvings took over 2000 years to create, making it the most impressive rock art collection around. The area was approved as a World Heritage Site in 2007 (by UNESCO) and was the first in Namibia. It has the densest and most important rock art concentration in Africa. The sites are guarded and require a tour guide to ensure their protection.
