Kalwelwa Bushcamp

Kalwelwa in Mwinilunga has only been known to ornithologists since 2015 but is already one of Zambia's prime birding destinations.

This depression system combines one of Zambia's largest wet evergreen forests with endless Kalahari sands grasslands and marshes, Marquesia dry evergeen forest and miombo woodlands.

Most of Mwinilunga's specials have healthy populations here, including the sought-after Grimwood's Longclaw.


Kalwelwa Bushcamp consists of 5 en-suite tented units. It is situated within Chief Kanyama's private wildlife area.

Many of the bird specials occur around camp while the main plains complex is a few minutes driving from camp.

Mwinilunga town, Chitunta Plain and the Source of the Zambezi are just over an hour's drive from here.


Our tents are twin shared with an en-suite bathroom (hot bucket shower, handwash basin and toilet) and a veranda with comfortable chairs to enjoy the birdlife. They are equipped with two single camp beds, bedding, towels, mosquito nets and spray and solar lights.


Prior booking is essential. The camp is open from 1 June to 30 November.
