Kalandula Falls, Kalandula

#3 of 7 in Nature in Angola
Reach the edge of a quarry cliff to photograph an example of nature's wrath and beauty at Kalandula Falls. Regarded as Africa's largest waterfall by volume, it measures 105 m (344 ft) in height and 400 m (1,300 ft) in width. To reach the sightseeing spots, you have to follow certain pathways and directions through the rocky landscape, but bear in mind that some access bridges were have been destroyed in war. As you reach the site, notice how the waterfall fed by seasonal rains forms a horseshoe shape, which continues to retract due to water's relentless erosive power. You can also hire a local to help you reach the bottom of the falls. Work out when and for how long to visit Kalandula Falls and other Kalandula attractions using our handy Kalandula journey planner.
