Lumangwe Falls

Near the Chipembe pontoon in the Northern Province are a miniature Victoria Falls that nourish a small rain forest on the Kalungwishi River. These falls are quite magnificent and well worth the 9km detour of the main road from Kawambwa to Mporokoso in the Northern Province. An ideal spot for camping, although there are no facilities – but then that’s the beauty of the place. You’re sure to be the only ones there. The Falls are said to be the home of the Great Snake Spirit called Lumangwe. In the olden days, this snake was said to have stretched itself between the Lumangwe and Kabweluma Falls, a distance of 5km.
