San Artists in South Africa

By Linda Tancs

Only two hours from Cape Town, the Cederberg mountains and wilderness area offers up telling rock art from the nomadic San.  The 2500 or so ancient sites depict everyday hunting and gathering activities and some not-so-mundane mysteries for rock sleuths.  After a day of rugged rock climbing, why not indulge in a cup of rooibos, a tea derived from the rooibos plant (Aspalathus Linearis) which is only found in the Cederberg region.  Famed for its restorative properties, you just might find your fountain of youth.
