Ancient rock art

Ancient rock art

The Rock Art safari in South Africa is one of the most treasured safaris on offer.  Rock art is precious; it tells of the first inhabitants of our land, their paintings are mystical, sacred and the artists have long vanished. However these paintings were never sold and priced whist the artists lived and I wonder if they ever thought they would never see them again or that they would not be able to pass the art of the rock art to  generations to come. So we are left with the most valuable original art ever that time will erase – this is the awesome artistic tale of people who roamed the entire Wilderness of Southern Africa.

The Rock Art must be viewed at its source to grasp its value.  This Bushman / San handiwork is Africa’s oldest rock art and, as an archaeological relic, cannot be, sold, bought or exported which is why we invite you to our unique galleries in the Sandstone hills, under mountain rock-falls and behind rocky outcrops in Southern Africa.

Rock Art safaris begin with your flight into O.R. Tambo International airport (Johannesburg, South Africa) or Cape Town International (Cape Town, South Africa)

Safari On foot

Safari On foot

A safari on foot is always exciting!

Most guests going to a private game lodge will have the option of a bush walk.

This is a short 1½-2 hour walk through the game reserve accompanied by a guide who will tell more about the plants and animals sign and tracks / spoor left along game paths.  I encourage all guests our on safari to take a bush walk as it gives you a different perspective about the game reserve and its wildlife.

For those wanting to spend more or most of their time on foot, why not book a trail safari where specialized trails guides conduct safaris on foot in game reserves and nature reserves.
