Address -: Lofoi Falls ,Kundelungu National Park, Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo ,Central Africa

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. The waters of the Lofoi are a tributary of the Lufira River.The falls shrink quite a bit during the drier season of June to October, but are quite dramatic during the rest of the year.
The waterfall itself consists of one single drop that makes its way down into a deep gorge where it connects with the Lofoi River. During the wet season, the drop can create a very misty and steamy look to the river where the water hits the surface.
Lofoi Falls is surrounded by very green and lush flora consisting of jungles and vegetation within Kundelungu. Though the actual flora of the surroundings has yet to be fully researched, speculations have concluded that many tree and plant species make up the majority of the lands.
The fauna includes a wide range of animal species as well, although because of poaching many herds and packs seemed to have vanished to other lands.
