The Kondoa Irangi Rock Paintings are a series of caves carved into the side of a hill looking out over the steppe. The caves contain paintings, some of which are believed to date back more than 1500 years.
The district of Kondoa, especially around the tiny village of Kolo, lies at the centre of one of the most impressive collections of ancient rock art on the African continent.
The Sandawe are based in the Kondoa district of Dodoma Region in central Tanzania. The Sandawe language is a tonal language with clicks, apparently related to the Khoe languages of southern Africa.
