Explore prehistoric cave paintings on a private, guided daytrip from Cape Town

This expert guided private day trip takes you to the beautiful Cederberg mountain conservancy about 3 hours outside Cape Town. Set within in a UNESCO World Heritage Site for nature - we will walk an easy wilderness trail to view a series of remarkable prehistoric San bushman cave paintings - many thousands of years old. This is in one of the best open-air art galleries of late stone-age Bushman rock art accessible from Cape Town. You will view and learn about this intriguing art and the people who painted it thousands of years ago. Walk through this ancient wilderness, learn about the earliest humans and experience their art in the landscape they inhabited for tens of thousands of years. This is a uniquely Southern African experience -- part archaeology, part cultural history, part African wilderness experience. This tour is also offered as a 2 or 3 day trip.
