Kolo Rock Art

Had a day off (Eid) from baseline survey work in Kondoa, so went to see these 6,000 year old rock paintings, after a trek up a rocky hillside to reach the three sites, originally catalogued by the Leakeys back in the 50s. You can tell which ones are male by the dreadlocks. And it would appear that 6,000 years ago zebra, giraffe, elephant, and eland looked much the same as they do now.


The round thing is the sun apparently

Eland and maybe a trap.

Guys with dreads


Abdi with giraffe, animal skin, and oddly positioned men

Some sort of antelope – eland maybe.
