MMore than 400 ancient rock etchings await visitors at the Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art Centre outside Kimberley, in the Northern Cape. Dating back as far as 1800 years, it is believed the engravings record the visions of Later Stone Age shamans as they went into states of trance.

If you've ever experienced the Northern Cape capital of Kimberley in mid-summer, you may have also been caught in a sudden, drenching Karoo thunderstorm. That's the way rain happens up here in the heartland, and out at the Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art Centre you'll see the way in which the ancient shamans have been connecting with the rain spirits for millennia.
