Peet Alberts Koppie - Bushman Engravings - Namibia

ADVENTURE SAFARIS NAMIBIA - more information on short trips in and around the village of Kamanjab in the north western region of Namibia, Africa.

PEET ALBERTS KOPPIE – NAMIBIA ROCK ENGRAVINGS
Peet Alberts, a Dorsland Trekker who returned with his family from Angola during 1928 was the owner of the property “Kamanjab C” at the time that this rock-art site was discovered and declared a National Monument and historical site in South-west Africa, Namibia.

It is estimated that around 1500 rock engravings can be found at the Peet Alberts Koppie. The biggest engraving in Namibia of 330cm Giraffe is found here as well as depictions of human feet and abstract honeycomb and circular forms overlapping with an array of animal engravings.

An estimated 2000+ years ago the San Bushmen / Khoekhoen tribes were responsible for the engravings at the site they used as a social and spiritual gathering place in the area.

The Peet Alberts Koppie close to the village of Kamanjab is the second largest rock engraving site in Namibia and well worth a visit.
