Project Description

The KwaXolo Caves contain prehistoric San rock art, which forms a significant part of the Ugu District Municipality (UDM), the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Province and South Africa’s cultural heritage. It is one of a series of painted rock shelters that are situated in a coastal zone stretching roughly from Port Shepstone in the north to Port St John’s in the south.

The project is aimed at creating more opportunities for the local communities to benefit directly from the tourism sector, by way of promoting homestay facilities, tour guiding, selling of indigenous craft products and promoting the use of indigenous knowledge.

Technical and financial details of the components of the project are available on request.
