Twyfelfontein is an important site of San engravings and rock paintings and represents one of the largest and most important concentrations of rock art in Africa with over 2,500 petroglyphs.

It was the first site of Namibia declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2007; Twyfelfontein is located in the Damaraland area in the Kunene region of Northern Namibia.

The site is located in a wide valley, that extends across the sandstone plateau, in the area where the Namib desert, with its red dunes, gives way to a landscape of dry swaying prairies.
