Sevilla Rock Art Trail, Clanwilliam

4.5
#2 of 9 in Things to do in Clanwilliam
Look back into the lives and art of the northwestern cape's early settlers as you walk Sevilla Rock Art Trail, a route connecting up several rock art sites. The main trail starts at the visitor center and links up nine different pieces of rock artwork along a 4 km (2.48 mi) route, with the option to turn around at any time. Dated between 8,000 and 800 years old, the paintings depict scenes of the San people's daily life. Following a river, the path offers little shade, so bring plenty of water and sun protection.

  • Good place to stop. The Rock Art trail is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Quiet and peaceful. Wide variety of paintings. Great Coffee milkshakes await you upon your return.
  • You should go and check it out if you can! A good concentration of rock art on one trail! Easily accessible and not too long!
