Prehistoric paintings in Phillipp’s Cave, Usakos, Namibia. Stone tools found in this site have been dated to 3,500 BCE.

This cave, 3km off the road, contains the famous white elephant painting. Superimposed on the elephant is a antelope (perhaps an eland), and around it frolic ostriches and giraffes. The Ameib paintings were brought to attention in the book Phillips Cave by prehistorian Abbe Breuil, but his speculations about their Mediterranean origins have now been discounted.
