List of Sites open to public visitation

Legislation prohibits any person from approaching within 50m of a rock art site without a permit. Grafitti and vandalism over the last few decades have had a severe impact on many rock art sites. At some the art, which was clearly visible thirty years ago has been obliterated by human intervention. However, in order to give the general public access to rock art, a policy was developed to allow conditional access to a number of sites in the province. In terms of this policy, a limited number of sites have been opened to the public. Link to more information on sites open to the public.

A custodian policy was developed. An Amafa-trained custodian, who ensures that appropriate behaviour is followed, must accompany all people visiting the "open" sites. Custodians are not permanently employed by Amafa and charge a fee direct to the visitor. This fee is determined by Amafa and based on the distance to the site.
