  • This place doesn't get enough publicity, which would also generate more income so it can be cared for properly. The paintings are stunning.

  • I combined a trip to see the paintings along with a visit to the atmospheric fishing town of Berbera as its only a short detour of the main road.

  • I'm fascinated by rock art. There petroglyphs are still bright despite their age. Our guide was somewhat informative about them, but I would have liked to have been better informed.
