Info Discovered by Ahmed Al-Mistikawy is the senior guide of Zarzora Expedition in 2002, the rock-art site of Mistikawy Cave, in northwest Gilf Kebir, is yet to be studied. Due to its remoteness, the site, like several other prehistoric remains, has been visited by only few hundreds of people. Most of those were tourists with general interest in rock-art. however, systematic examination requires sincere efforts, well-fitted logistics and precious time. Zarzora Expedition has led several trips to the area and recently began to document the drawings and look for other, believed to exist, Neolithic shelters.
