Twyfelfontein

Set in the Kunene Region of northwestern Namibia, Twylfelfontein is a spectacularly scenic area, featuring one of the largest and most important concentrations of rock art in Africa. The name ‘Twyfelfontein’ translates to ‘Fountain of Doubt’, which refers to the perennial spring situated in the impressive Huab valley flanked by the slopes of a sandstone table mountain. It was this spring that attracted Stone Age hunters over six thousand years ago, and it was during this time that the extensive group of rock engravings and paintings were produced. Visitors can look forward to exploring over thirty different sites of these sacred records of ritual practices relating to traditional hunter-gatherer communities. The area also counts the Huab and Aba-Huab riverbeds, where desert-adapted wildlife (including elephants) can be seen, especially in the dry season. For travellers seeking to discover the Damara Culture, the Damara Living Museum is the perfect place for that. Lastly, some geological features are of interest in the area, such as the Organ Pipes, the Burnt Mountain, and a bit further away, the Petrified Forest.
