Visit the Nsalu Caves

This National Monument is sadly neglected but is still worth a visit to view Stone Age Man's "schematic" rock paintings. There are none of the figures of animals and people usually associated with Bushman paintings but lines and "ladders" and other unexplained outlines, thought to be up to 100,000 years old.

Kasanka Trust is in negotiations with the Heritage Department and international Rock Art experts to improve the care of the paintings and prevent further natural or man inflicted damage.

Where are the Nsalu Caves?

The caves can be found between Serenje and Mpika, about 60km north of Serenje.

If driving along the Great North Road, head north and turn left turn at the signpost for Nsalu Cave.  Follow this road for about 14km and turn left at the 'National Nonument' sign. After a further 8km this track ends and the cave  will be visible about halfway up the hill, on which a walking trail is marked.
