There is magnificent rock art shelter in Game Pass and there is a guided walk to the area every day. The earliest inhabitants of the Drakensberg were Bushmen. These San people lived in harmony with their environment, taking no more than they needed to survive. Sadly, violent clashes with white settlers and Nguni tribes brought their era to an end and all that remains is their remarkable rock craft. The Bushman art at Kamberg is possibly the best examples in South Africa
