Cederberg Heritage Route – Sevilla Trail

The final day of this particular option is a guided walk along the Sevilla Rock Art Trail. After breakfast we were met by local guide and rock art expert John Mountain, for transfer to Traveller’s Rest, where the trail starts. The road out of Wupperthal is quite spectacular and a visit to this area, via the Biedou Valley, is worth just for this drive. The gravel road showed sign of being worked on and for the most part, was in excellent condition.

I have walked the Savilla Trail several times myself, so was familiar with the area. John, with his expertise, gave new insights in to the history and the interpretation of the rock art.

The terrain is fairly flat, following the bank of a riverbed and the walking is easy. John has so much to add and so many stories to tell, that it took us a bit longer than anticipated, with the only negative was that we could easily have spent another hour or two with this interesting man.
