Situated in the Kunene Region of north western Namibia is one of the largest and most important concentrations of rock art in Africa, Twyfelfontein. Twyfelfontein, which was proclaimed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 2007, is not a town or a village but rather a rocky site that contains approximately 2000 rock carvings that draw tens of thousands of local and international visitors every year, making Twyfelfontein one of the top tourist attractions in Namibia. The nearest small town to Twyfelfontein is Khorixas, which lies about 80 km to the east.

The name Twyfelfontein which directly translated means Doubtful Fountain was given to the area in the mid 1900's by a farmer who had settled on the land. The farmer was unsure whether or not the spring (/Ui//aes) which was situated there would be sufficient to support his family and farming needs. The land was then allocated as communal land for the exclusive use of Damara farmers in 1971 under the segregation laws of apartheid and the region which now roughly encompasses the area called Kunene Province was renamed Damaraland.

Although the rock art and engravings were known to the local habitants long before the rest of the world heard about them, it was only in 1920 that their existence was made public by Reinhard Maack. The locals however had always avoided the area because they believed the place was a sacred area which was inhabited by spirits of the deceased.

A completely eco-friendly visitor's centre has been erected at Twyfelfontein. The structure was built and designed to blend into the red sandstone of the local environment, contains no cement and uses predominantly recycled and local materials. If it ever needed to be moved or removed for any reason, the structure could be completely dismantled without leaving any impression on the landscape. There are also a series of stone pathways that have been laid, leading to the viewing platforms that allow visitors an excellent view of the major engravings. The Centre has various displays, from the history of the site, to the local fauna and flora as well as the meanings of the various engravings.

Twyfelfontein lies in a valley which is surrounded by the slopes of a sandstone table mountain, which is covered by a hard patina. The early San hunters who roamed the land during the stone ages, chiselled through this protective covering to produce their art work and in time it reformed over the engravings protecting them from weathering. Both the hunters and animals of the region were attracted to this area because of the small perennial spring, which was the only one of its kind in the area.

Some of the most famous and most impressive rock engravings include those known as, the lion with the kink in its tail, the giant giraffe, the fable animal, the works at the place of ceremonies and the symbolic engravings in the vicinity of the terraces. There are also 13 sites that contain rock paintings amongst the numerous rock engravings at Twyfelfontein.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
