Do the Sevilla Rock Art Trail

When you stay at Clanwilliam Lodge, there are many attractions in less than an hour’s drive from Clanwiliam. Sevilla Rock Art Trail is one of them and a “must see” "must do"

The 5km trail winds along the Brandewyn river and visits nine sites of rock art paintings, left behind by the San people, who inhabited the area for thousands of years. The Sevilla Rock Art trail offers some of the finest examples of rock art in the district and a fascinating glimpse into the world of these early inhabitants.

The trail is relatively easy walking, the atmosphere is inspiring and in spring the wild flowers are an added bonus. Over and above Springbok and Eland, small game, "dassies" (rock rabbits) and baboons may be encountered on the walk and a fascinating array of indigenous plant species and birds can be observed.

A free pamphlet with information about each of the nine sites is available from Traveller's Rest farm stall.
