Special Interest: Namibia has a rich ancient rock art heritage. Our local guide in the Brandberg Tsiseb conservancy lands, will lead
us on a walk to view the White Lady rock painting. It is usually assumed that the painting shows a ritual dance, and that the “White Lady” is actually a medicine man.

Sustainable Tourism: In the Ugab wilderness region we camp at the White Lady Lodge campsite. A partnership was Signed in 2003 and the community benefit through employment and a percentage of the income of the lodge. There are also other
spin-offs such as the sale of fire wood to the lodge.
