“Fantastic site, lovely walk”

Sevilla Rock Art Trail
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 April 2017 via mobile

We went early during a very hot spell (35 degrees) and only did a small part of the trail to manage the energy our toddler, small baby and their grandparents.

Even so we thoroughly enjoyed the walk. The trail is fairly easy, very little clambering and no real climbing.

The rock art is amazing, some places exquisitely preserved. There is a person available to guide you as well as an information booklet.

We visited in the late afternoon to avoid the worst of the heat and were rewarded with good sightings of animals (eland, baboon and lizards) as well as the excellent paintings, clearly sign posted and well described. The travellers rest provided much needed sustenance on our return - not to be missed

This is a great walk along a river valley that takes in 9 rock art sites. You get a permit at the Travellers Rest at the entrance to the site along with an informative pamphlet and then take the walk at your own pace. The track is marked for out and return - although somehow we managed to wander off the route a little bit. We covered 4.6 miles on the walk - although it was advertised as a 5km round walk and took us about 2.5 hours with stops at each rock art location. You could do it in less time - we did not rush as we wanted to take in the extraordinary scenery. Do go early in the morning as it was very hot in February (35C by 11am) and we were glad to sit down for beer and lunch at the Travellers Rest at the end of our walk. Loved it.

Stop off at the Travellers Rest, follow the easily marked route and take in the marvel of this artwork. Stunning. Such a privilege. Then back to the cafe for a fab iced rooibos - tea and apple juice mix.

We visited the Rock Art Trail and Travellers Rest in November 2016. I was completely blown away by the quality of the rock art, having been disappointed in the past with other Rock Art (Bushman painting) sites, where you really had to use your imagination. Many of these images are very clear and the information provided in the leaflet, clearly and concisely helped you locate and understand what you were looking at. There are many other images also to be seen. We were advised to go early, sun rise if possible as it would get pretty hot and the light would dilute the images. I am glad we did. The easy walk took us about 2,5 hrs as we stopped and photographed a lot. 2hrs to the last site and a quick 1/2hr walk back along a slightly more direct route. All well sign posted. Travellers Rest provided thirst quenching drinks and delicious food (we stayed in the cottages the previous night - you can self cater or order from a simple menu). The accommodation was simple, more than adequate and most importantly clean. Will definitely be returning and have recommended to friends.
