Mwela Rock Art

This place is only about 5km outside of Kasama. You can try hitching from past the roundabout, or get in a shared taxi from next to shoprite for less than 20kwa. The place is only 8kwa to get in with a work permit. Not sure how much otherwise but they didn’t even check my permit. If you tell them it’s your first time they’ll find a guide to go with you. I believe you’re supposed to tip this guy at the end, I wasn’t expecting that and literally only had enough to get back to town and felt really bad. If it’s not your first time there you’re free to just roam as you’d like. People like to go and watch the sunset at the top of the rocks. If it’s your first time the guide will show you about 4 sites with rock paintings and caves from the Twa people who used to live there before the Bemba tribe moved in. It’s really interesting to see and the views from the top of the rocks are beautiful.
