Namoratunga Site

Namoratunga Site 1

Turkana County has a rich rock art heritage consisting mainly of rock engravings dating back over 2000 years. Most of the rock engravings in the area consist of geometric designs although some animals, such as elephants and giraffes, can also be found. It is believed that at least some of the rock engravings were made by Twa hunter-gatherers because similar images have been found from the areas they habited in East Uganda and parts of Lake Victoria basin. The main rock art sites in Turkana County include Namoratunga and Kang’itit.
