The White lady bushman paintings

The White Lady is a rock painting deep within Brandberg Mountain. It is accepted to be a bushmen painting, dating back at least 2000 years ago. There are many theories as to what exactly this white lady is. According to some theories the White Lady is a bushman medicine doctor. Elephants often walk on the part towards the White Lady bushman painting and thus it is not always save to enter. There are guides at the entrance who will warn you.
The Brandberg itself hosts over 1 000 bushmen paintings, scattered around in rock shelters and caves. bushman paintings

Brandberg mountain

The name Brandberg is Afrikaans for Fire Mountain. The highest point is standing at 2,573 m above sea level. You can hike up this mountain however the conditions is significantly more tough than hiking up the Drakensberg mountain since there are hardly any water on this mountain. Although the mountain is not as high as the Drakensberg mountain the hike up is much steeper and longer since you start at a much lower point than what hikers are generally used to at the Drakensberg mountains. There are also a few rocks where trad climbers can climb up. You can ask the MCSA Namibia section for a route guide.
