Another wonderful must see site in Kimberley. A good 20 minute video is shown before the tour of the site that gives a good account of the trials and tribulations of the San. Very knowledgeable guide.

Lovely venue on the road between Kimberley and Barkly West. Small museum with displays highlighting the Border War in Namibia and the role of the San in the war. Watch the short video before you venture into the veld to see the interesting rock art....More

We stopped at this centre and immediately liked the gentleman who was to take us around the site. He was fun, knowledgeable and a nice guy. He answered all our questions. The rock art is wonderful - more people should see this centre!!!

Wanted to visit. Fortunately called ahead. Disappointed to hear that closed all day on a week day in mid December. Gentleman said that a private visit could be arranged, gave me another number, but sounded tricky to arrange.

While we have explored numerous painted rock art sites, this was my first experience of rock engravings. The interesting hilltop site was brought to life by Petrus, the resident expert.
