World Heritage Site - Namibia

Twyfelfontein


Once a small dot on the Namibian map, Twyfelfontein in Kunene region has not only become the country’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site in June 2007, but is expected to popularise Namibia and attract tourists from all over the world to admire the thousands of historical rock art at the site.

Twyfelfontein is situated in a transitional zone between the Namib Desert and the semi-desert area in the Kunene region. It has a wide variety of rock arts which, date back between 2000 and 3000 years.

This site comprises roughly 2 500 rock engravings on 212 slabs of rock, as well as 13 panels containing a number of rock paintings, including the prehistoric rock carvings, with over 2 000 figures documented to date.

Its magnificent scenery attracts 95% of international tourists and 5% of local tourists.

Namibia is a state party to the World Heritage Convention of 1972, a rigid requirement for a member country, which intends to nominate a candidate site for inscription.

As required, Namibia had to submit two motivational documents namely; the Nomination Dossier and the Property Management Plan for submission to UNESCO, to ensure the inscription of Twyfelfontein as its first World Heritage Site.
