About Sevilla Rock Art Trail

Start: Traveller's Rest farm, Cederberg
Finish: Traveller's Rest farm
Duration: 4 km, roughly 3 hours, 9 different rock art sites
Fitness: easy, good to do with children provided you do not want to spend any length of time studying the rock art
Our tip: the trail combines well with a visit to either the Biedouw Valley or the Moravian mission village of Wupperthal.

This is a self-guided tour of nine different rock art sites in the heart of the Cederberg. The trail is set on Traveller's Rest farm, about 36 km outside of Clanwilliam.

Pick up a map or guide booklet from either the farm's farmstall or from the tourist information office in Clanwilliam (almost essential, or the essence of the rock art will be lost on you). Better still is a copy of Peter Slingsby's Rock Art of the Western Cape Book 1, which covers the Sevilla Trail in detail.

Estimated at between 800 and 8 000 years old, the rock art sites are an example of the 2 500 odd paintings found in the caves and rocks of the Cederberg.

The trail follows the Brandewyn River, an easy linear walk that allows you to turn back whenever it suits you. Visitors who have explored the rock art suggest that the latter five sites are more extraordinary than the initial four, particularly sites five to seven.

Added tip: do the Sevilla rock art trail in spring for the wild flowers.
