I don't know what this cost to visit - we went with a guide to a few locations so I can't speak to its value. Basically you walk a 100m or so from the lot to the visitor center. This is an iconic building that's...More

For a world Heritage site it’s pretty low key. The visitor centre is a design icon in its own right. A ten minute walk to the site itself which can be quite difficult to negotiate. Guides were knowledgeable. It’s worth a visit.

We wandered along the route with our well versed guide who also pointed out fresh leopard footprints along the path! The visual appeal of the primitive depiction of animals, birds etc was striking. A noteworthy carving of two wells, one permanent and one of doubtful...More

we stopped off here on the way to damaraland - in a bit of rush but really wanted to see the rock art. It was lunchtime so very hot but slightly less busy and very interesting tour - well worth the effort

The carvings are interesting but I wouldn't plan a night stop there. The walk takes only an hour. So try planning it as a stop on a day tour. You have to tell the guide if you want to see the dancing Kudu or the...More

only takes about 3/4 hour, an obligatory guide is included in the price. You park up under a shaded parking area and give the car guard a tip when you leave. Very hot as you can imagine. We just went here and didn't go to...More

Interesting and impressive... a piece of human history, definitely, however... We drove from Etosha more than 400 km using bumpy road. Then going from Twyfelfontein to Skeleton Coast another 400 km of bumpy road. Was it worth such an effort? I could probably live and...More

in a really stunning desert landscape these 2,500 or so year old rock carvings a amazing. The visitor centre is footed with 50 gallon oil drums cut in half and used as pan tiles. very clever bit of recycling.

Many rock etchings and art of animals from hundreds of years ago well preserved. It is quite a scramble up so be sure to have non slip footwear and bring water. Our guide taught us a lot and was careful to lend a hand where...More

An amazing place in a beautiful location, well worth the effort of getting there. The guide that went with us was great, very knowledgeable and helpful. It is worth taking extra effort and walking both trails - one with a guide and the other, which...More

Hi Laryssa, I can't remember the exact opening time, the staff at !Dornawas indicated it was open at 8:30 (as I remember it) it's really laid back and they have a lot of guides. It's completely safe as a location and tour.
