Rock art sites in the Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve (video)

The family-run Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve, situated at the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains only 270 km from Cape Town, is offering various outdoor activities including nature drives, walking and hiking trails, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, and swimming in clear rock pools. Bushmans Kloof is home to over 130 rock art sites which date back some 10,000 years, creating one of the world's largest open-air art galleries. Trained guides conduct daily rock-art walks to rock art sites.

One of Bushmans Kloof's most famous rock art sites is a site called "Fallen Rock Shelter".It houses one of the largest collections of well-preserved and diverse rock art images known in the region, as well as the largest painting of a San cave dwelling group known in the Western Cape. Kudos outdoor & travel magazine "Go!" for the video!
