The Lofoi Falls (also known as the Chutes Kaloba and the Chutes Lofoi) is a waterfall in Kundelungu National Park, Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Plunging down for an unbroken 340 m, it is one of the largest waterfalls in Central Africa.[1] The waters of the Lofoi are a tributary of the Lufira River.[1] The falls shrink quite a bit during the drier season of June to October, but are quite dramatic during the rest of the year.[2]
