KENHARDT ADVENTUROUS ROUTES

PHOTO FOSSIL HUNT
Bushmanland Crafts and Tours, Northern Cape, South Africa offers an unique "Photo Fossil Hunt" on ancient rock face near Kenhardt, the heart land of engravings in the region, 110 km South from Upington. These outcrops include the beautiful quiver tree forest, 10km from Kenhardt as well as others outcrops surrounding Kenhardt. The quiver trees bloom from April to June and it is a perfect time to visit the region.
This is not an ordinary experience. With your camera in hand and a short free course given by us, you will enjoy the fresh air and the wide open space on these outcrops. Rock and Petroglyphs became very special to us. After 20 years we came to the conclusion that rock art refers to something that got fossilized in these outcrops. Interesting petroglyphs e.g. dinosaurs and footprints to be seen
