According to orally tradition farmers have use this structure before the proclamation of the park to capture leopards. In the old days people have refer to leopards as tigers from there the name.

These are quiver trees in the area on which inscriptions are been carved out. Althought these inscriptions usually contains initials or dates, there is particular one quiver tree in the Zeekoeisteek area in the Park with a whole phrase which tells a story.
Here it follows: "DIE WEER IS MOOI 11DES. 1933 DAAR IS HOOP"
Which means that the weather looks promising and that there is hope.
Underneath the inscription is the initials "HK" been carved. According to orally tradition the inscription has been made by two farmers. They was Toop Mostert and Henry Klindt. These two farmers was with their sheep in the veld when clouds began to conglomerate. 1933- The date on which occur on the tree, is been regarded as a time of one of the severist drought within living memory. The two farmers was so moved due to the clouds, which leads to the inscription on the quiver tree made by them.
One of the more visual examples of cultural inheritance resources in the Augrabies area is the rock graves which can be associated with the Late Stoneage, and overall with the Khoi from that time .
The first written reference to these graves in the area is in 1779 been made by a European, Robert Jacob Gordon.
Althought it is difficult to bind the graves to the San or Khoi in the Late Stoneage, there can be distinquished between Khoi and San graves. Khoi graves are been recognized by heaped up graves and a few grave belongings. This are less visible in San graves.
Research which have been made by Dr. Allan Morris, a anatomist which belongs to the University of Cape Town , and which have done research on the Late Stoneage graves in the area of the Park, suggest that most of these graves date back to the 18th and 19th century.
