The Domboshowa Rocks and Painted Cave Site is one of the most substantive rock art sites in Zimbabwe. A huge granite outcrop is eroded and forms an erosional and wind cave, more or less large overhanging cliffs or shelters also called abri.
The cave contains rock paintings, otherwise known as Bushmen or San paintings. It has an almost 100m long panel of paintings which are well preserved. The paintings shows human figures (male and female) and hunting scenes. The brown-colored cave paintings are about 13,000 years old, the black-colored paintings perhaps 2,000. The Stone Age occupation of the site is evidenced by numerous quartz chips found on the ground.
