Hear them roar

The Kalandula Falls are one of the largest waterfalls in Africa by volume and arguably Angola's most famous tourist attraction.


At the Kalandula Falls the 400-metre-wide (1,300 ft) Lucala River drops 105 metres (344 ft) with a breathtaking roar. The falls are best viewed during the rainy season that runs from February to April.

Get in[edit]

The road from Luanda is not in good condition. However, you should be able to make it there without a 4WD, emphasis on should.

Get around[edit]

The falls up close, through the mist

You can procure a guide for around Kz5000 to take you to some of the better viewpoints.


There is a hotel at the falls, Pousada Calandula. The other alternative if you're staying the night is to find a hotel in Malanje. You probably don't want to be driving the road from the falls at night, so time your departure accordingly.
