The Drakensberg Mountains is home to one of the greatest concentrations of the rock art of the indigenous San people. 500 sites of 20,000 individual paintings have been recorded, covering a period from about three thousand years ago. Didima and Giant’s Castle camps are both excellent places to go to see some fine examples of rock art as well as to join guided tours to help you understand and interpret the rock art. The depictions cover many elements of the early San life, from hunting to the importance of their shaman, and it is eerie to see this window into an extinct civilisation.
