Sevilla rock art trails and excursions from Cederberg Ridge Wilderness Lodge
One of our most popular excursions is our rock art excursion which is a walk. This is an activity which really benefits from having a guide!

The Cederberg is teeming with remarkable and ancient rock art of the San bushmen people, the first inhabitants of South Africa. With some 2,500 documented sites, the Cederberg is one of the best locations in the World for rock art. In the Cederberg, you can view these delicate paintings, flowing with movement and life, with no crowds to spoil your quiet enchantment.

Our guides introduce you not only to the life and culture of the San but also to the natural beauty of their homeland. Our guides are very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the San people. They are passionate about sharing this with you on our guided bushmen rock art walk.

The rock art excursion takes a full morning (3 to 4 hours, depending on your interest. In high summer, we may head out early in the cool of the day. Then we come back for a late breakfast/brunch.

Tip: Though our rock art excursion is not hilly, it is a walk on uneven ground. So it is not suitable for frail people who cannot walk very far.

Rock Art & Flower-viewing in Spring

However in the Spring (mainly August) we often combine viewing the rock art with a drive to see some of the wild spring flowers, making it a full day excursion. We enjoy a picnic lunch in the veld. (The Afrikaans name for the wild bush).
