Gambarimwe Cave


Gambarimwe Cave is a national monument.

Why Visit

This cave is also quite remote; some of the paintings are high up on the wall and therefore have survived in reasonable condition. It has a number of good camp scenes and a frieze of stippling and trees that stretch across most of the cave
