Activities

THE SEVILLA ROCK ART TRAIL
The 5km trail winds along the Brandewyn river and visits nine sites of rock art paintings, left behind by the San people, who inhabited the area for thousands of years. The Sevilla Rock Art trail offers some of the finest examples of rock art in the district and a fascinating glimpse into the world of these early inhabitants. 

The trail is relatively easy walking, the atmosphere is inspiring and in spring the wild flowers are an added bonus. Over and above Springbok and Eland, small game, "dassies" (rock rabbits) and baboons may be encountered on the walk and a fascinating array of indigenous plant species and birds can be observed.

A free pamphlet with information about each of the nine sites is available from Traveller's Rest farm stall.  For those who would like more information on the rock art as well as plants on the trail, copies of the book "Rock Art of the Western Cape - Book 1:  The Sevilla Trail" by Peter Slingsby are for sale at the farm stall at R85.00.

Permits: Obtain permits at the Traveller's Rest farm stall at R40 per person. 
Children under 12 are free of charge.

The ambience is relaxed and colourful and the interior has been decorated with excellent reproductions, painted by artist Sarah Mackie, of some of the rock art on the farm.
