Namibia's largest collection of prehistoric rock arts sites—some dating back more than 3,000 years—is concentrated is the remote valley of Twyfelfontein, which translates somewhat ominously as Doubtful Spring. Several of the area's 2,000-plus engravings and paintings, including the so-called Lion Man and Dancing Kudus, can be seen on a clearly marked 90-minute walking trail starting at the entrance gate. A good lodge services the site and also offers access to the Khorixas Petrified Forest and a striking rock formation called the Organ Pipes. About 200 mi/320 km northwest of Windhoek.
