Kundalila Falls is a waterfall on the Kaombe River in Zambia. It falls over the lip of the Muchinga escarpment and makes a waterfall near the small town of Kanona in the Serenje District. It is set in the wilderness on the edge of the Muchinga escarpment. It is the only waterfall of such grandeur that is set so high on the escarpment. The name 'Kundalila Falls' means "crying dove" in the local Bemba language.For travelers who use our world travel planner, Serenje holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kundalila Falls and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
From top of the falls there are views over the Luangwa Valley which is part of the Albertine Rift, the western branch of the East African Rift. In multiple stages the Kaombe River drops approximately 80m from the escarpment. At the foot of the fall is a natural deep pool surrounded by wild flowers. Visitors are allowed to swim and are encouraged to camp and picnic at the site.
Kundalila Falls is one of the official Zambian Natural Monuments.

Beautiful place to be, I'd recommend to start off early when planning to visit to get a little much more time to enjoy the beautiful views. It's located about 50km out of serenje and has some great stories around it. There's a pool where you can swim but don't get too excited you'll need a tour guide. It's steep when walking down to the falls. There's not so much development around it, just a small shed where you can have a drink from and a sizeable parking area. There's also a camping site nearby.
Beautiful waterfalls. Spectacular view from the bottom and a good place for hiking.
