TRAVEL


Twyfelfontein (Afrikaans: uncertain spring), officially known as Ç€Ui-Ç Ais (Damara/ Nama: jumping waterhole), is a site of ancient rock engravings in the Kunene Region of northwestern Namibia. It consists of a spring in a valley flanked by the slopes of a sandstone table mountain that receives very little rainfall and has a wide range of diurnal temperatures. The site has been inhabited for 6,000 years, first by huntergatherers and later by Khoikhoi herders. Both ethnic groups used it as a place of worship and a site to conduct shamanist rituals. In the process of these rituals at least 2,500 items of rock carvings have been created, as well as a few rock paintings. Displaying one of the largest concentrations of rock petroglyphs in Africa, UNESCO approved Twyfelfontein as Namibia's first World Heritage Site in 2007.


Burnt Mountain Burnt Mountain is in a south-easterly direction from Twyfelfontein and is really a hill at the foot of a 12 km long volcanic ridge. Nothing grows in this rather desolate area. It was proclaimed a national monument in the Official Gazette because “it was of a certain barren mountain there which, with a unique play of colour on its slopes and surfaces during morning and evening hours, proved a highlight in the otherwise monotonous landscape around Twyfelfontein�.
