On Kaingo Private Game Reserve we do not only preach 'conservation first', we all live it. Our field guides are passionate about the heritage left by the people who lived here before us.

 

In the above photo one of our highly qualified, professional field guides, Andre Nell, is getting his guests super excited about these paintings.

 

There are three rock art that traditions that occur in the #Waterberg area, which Kaingo is a part of. In some rock art sites, all three of these diverse art traditions occur together.

 

The oldest is the San (Bushman) rock art, Khoekhoe paintings (made by the Khoi) and Northern Sotho paintings. Art by the Khoi people was geometric in design, very different from the San rock art. Whilst Northern Sotho art is always painted, never engraved, and easy to distinguish from San rock art, as most of it is painted in white clay with the odd black and red highlight, and applied with the finger.
