Reviewed 5 January 2017

We did this trail on a hot day. The trail itself is well marked and easy to do. All Rock art locations are well marked and explained in a small leaflet. You get this when you pay the entrance fee at Traveller's Rest. Because of the heat we returned after seeing exhibit number 6. It is well worth doing this trail and seeing the art left behind by the San. Amazing how wel kept these 'paintings' are after thousands of years. The drive from Clanwilliam via the Pakhuis Pass is also very nice.

In Europe the rock art of our ancestors is generally in the form of cave paintings that are susceptible to damage by humidity from human breath and can only be preserved by denying public access. In Africa the art is under rock shelters and ledges with dry air circulating. It was therefore a thrill to be able to see the real thing after only being able to visit reproductions in France. Entry is a modest 40 R and then you follow the painted footsteps in a kind of treasure hunt to find all the sites and identity the rock art. It was a bit of a scramble in places but perfectly do-able even for someone with replaced and/or worn out joints. It's not essential to visit all 9 sites you can turn around at the halfway point if time, weather or energy levels are against you. The Travellers' Rest provided us with refreshments following our exertions. Despite overcast skies and taking plenty of water we were very hot and dusty on our return.

The walk is not too difficult and plan on spending at last two hours to really see all of the art. Go early in the morning or late in the afternoon for the full effect. Bring a bottle of water per person.

This is a great way to see fabulous rock art. Its about a 5km round trip, beware if its hot take lots of water.
You need to purchase tickets at the entrance( R40 per adult), and you are given a map with all the relevant details.
We found it easy on the way there, and got lost a few times on the way back as the markings weren't that easy to see, or we were poor map readers! Definitely worth doing.

Needing good exercise after excessive holiday eating? This is a great "walk" in the mountains to see the rock art from the San bushmen. Out in the open, beautiful scenery and a trip back in time that is a must for travellers. And when done, nothing like a cold beer at Travellers Rest to recharge your batteries.
