Bushmen Art will probably be disappointing to the casual tourist. It is not a particularly grandiose or spectacular sight. It's real value is that it is a small window into a lost civilisation that existed 1000s of years ago. To get real value from a...More

We went there because this place is special. There is no opportunity to buy drinks or food. The staff and our guide were very friendly. The way is a bit long, they said 2 hours for the whole tour, maybe it was a little less...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the White Lady. It was a nice 45 minutes walk up hill in a very nice landscape. Our guide was good and showed us traces of leopards from the night before. We weren't lucky enough to see desert elephants,...More

The good thing was it just being a 30 minute drive from Brandberg rest camp, but the bad thing was the site was inhabited by many lions for the previous 3 weeks and was obviously deemed too dangerous to make the 2 km trek walk...More

You arrive at the permit office, buy your permit, and then a guide takes you to the rock paintings. You have to walk for nearly an hour to get there, walking briskly. It's a nice hike and a nice part of the experience. You can...More

Visited early September 2017 but already the temperature in the narrow valley that you walk through reached 40 degrees. On a map it looks like a short walk of around a mile or so to see the rock art which is the 'white lady' but...More

It is mandatory to go with a guide and you must be ready to walk for longer than 1 hour. Two dessert elephants were seen in the area when we went, therefore it took us a bit longer, because the guide had to check the...More

Probably our favorite thing we did in the Brandberg area. Very cool rock art. We were lucky enough to get an excellent and very engaged guide, who showed us extra paintings and was good at pointing out desert animals (mostly lizards) and plants, and discussing...More

Close to Brandberg. We used Google maps to navigate to it, which worked.
