Kolo Rock Art

Kolo Rock Art

The majority of rock paintings found in the Kolo-Kondoa UNESCO World Heritage site are found high up on
silent bush covered hills, commanding wide and spectacular views over far reaching game plains, still sparsely inhabited
by herds of wild animals which played such an important part in the lives of these early hunters. Even where huts
have been built, or shambas cleared for cultivation, either heat haze obscures entirely, or distance so dwarfs these
signs of occupation that the illusion of an uninhabitated landscape is still preserved.

Over a period of thousands of years, the rock art around Kolo and Kondoa provides a fascinating look at a
developing culture and still provides much discussion on interpretation and development.
