Phillip's Cave

Rock Paintings | Usakos | Namibia

Phillipp's Cave is named after E. Phillipp a former owner of Farm Ameib, signposted from the main road on the Swakopmund side of Usakos. The cave is about a 45mins walk through Namibian landscape from the farmstead and was proclaimed a national monument on 1st February 1951. It contains a number of rock paintings, the most noted being a large, white elephant. Amongst other artifacts found from a test trench dug were a number of stone tools. The archaeological dig was carried out by H. Pager in an extensive year-long survey of the upper Brandberg in 1989 and again in 1992.

The cave is 15m deep, 35m wide and 7m high. There are a number of large paintings of mainly giraffe and rhinoceros. Finger traces of the original artists who applied the paint are still evident. The other images are of kudu, 6 human hand prints and some larger depictions of humans. Various other illustrations include women, elephant, ostrich, male hunters, giraffe, springbok and rhinoceros.
