Yang akan Anda lakukan

For this uniquely Southern African experience, I'll meet you at your Cape Town accommodation around 6am and we'll drive out of the city to the beautiful Cederberg Mountain wilderness bioreserve - a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its exceptional biodiversity. (Transport by car/van thru Coach Connections 021 559 7000.) It's a 3-hour drive through wide open countryside to the head of the trail in the mountains.

We'll walk an easy, flat 4-5km wilderness trail (or optional shorter trail) to explore a series of Bushman painting archaeological sites - one of the most exceptional ancient open air art galleries in the world. These late stone-age paintings are several thousand years old - and are part of an art tradition spanning 10s of thousands of years - one of the oldest known to man.

This is an art, archaeology, wilderness, and cultural history experience rolled into one. You'll learn about the world of the hunter-gatherer San Bushmen (whose history goes back more than 100,000 years) and their extraordinary, fine-line rock paintings.

On the way back we'll have lunch at a farm restaurant and you'll be back in the city by evening.
I'll advise on clothes before departure depending on weather.

This is conscious travel to gain knowledge of early man (and woman:) and this intriguing art. You'll come away inspired and rejuvenated by these art galleries in this mountain landscape.

I'm the founder of Cape Town Outside - specializing in guided, off-the-beaten path trips from Cape Town. I'm also a well-travelled South African journalist, photographer and surfer and have spent much time exploring the stone-age San bushman rock paintings of southern Africa. These delicately painted, intriguing paintings are a world treasure and are part of one of the oldest artistic traditions known to man -- our common heritage. I'll show you some of this extraordinary art on a wilderness trail, all set in a UNESCO world heritage site for its exceptionally rich biodiversity. These mountains were once home to the San bushmen who lived and painted here for many thousands of years. This is a day trip. I also do two- and three-day rock art adventures going deeper into the mountains. Look for it on Airbnb Adventures.

We can warmly recommend this expedition with Callan. He is very knowledgeable and eminent in describing things. The area we walked through was full of rock paintings and one could feel a breath of history around us. In addition, he is sympathetic and easy to be with, as well as a seasoned driver one is comfortable with. Callan gets our warmest recommendations. This was an experience that exceeded our expectations.
