The paintings in the Cave of Bushman Paradise itself are situated under a overhang at the head of a amphitheatre and shows numerous humans and animals and a sphinx. The monument also includes two caves diagonally opposite from there that also contain paintings plus a waterfall below them with its catchment area..
The paintings have been known since the beginning of the 20th century; first archeological excavations by E. Reuning in 1917. When A. H. Breuil did his research in 1948, he found the convex rear wall covered all over with paintings that have been one of the finest examples in Namibia.
