The settlement of Riemvasmaak is located in a spectacular corner of the arid Northern Cape Province, close to the Namibian border and Augrabies Falls. This harsh region was inhabited by San hunter-gatherers for millennia, and from about 2000 years ago until historical times also by Khoekhoen (Khoikhoi) herders of fat-tailed sheep and cattle.
During the 20th century invaluable palaeontological discoveries were made at the farm Aar in the Karas Region of southern Namibia. The farm is also rich in a variety of rock art traditions, depicted as engravings etched on flat rock surfaces and painted images on the walls of rock shelters.
Erindi Private Game Reserve, Namibia
Erindi Private Game Reserve lies along the eastern border of the Erongo Region on the Central Plateau of Namibia. Many species of game, including large predators, roam the over 70 000 hectares of savanna dotted with mountains of volcanic origin. Archaeological evidence suggests that the area encompassing the reserve was occupied by many prehistoric cultures over a long period of time. The oldest of these cultures was the San who were responsible for the magnificent rock art in the reserve.
