Ngonye Falls, horseshoe shaped waterfalls cascade over a 20m drop
Ngonye Falls also known as Sioma Falls are located outside the village of Sioma
These beautiful falls mark the transition point of the Zambezi Rivers’ flow from Kalahari sand floodplain to basalt dyke the latter eventually contributing to the magnificent gorges of the Victoria Falls.
The horseshoe-shaped Ngonye Falls are mostly impressive because of the sheer volume of water that cascades over the staggered twenty metre drop.
An interesting aspect is that the river flows underneath the rock on either side of the falls. It’s quite remarkable to stand upon them, feeling and hearing the underground flow.
Directly below the falls are a series of rapids that make for a good day’s white-water rafting.
SIOMA NGWEZI NATIONAL PARK
This 5000 square kilometre park in the south western corner of the country has been completely undeveloped and rarely visited until recently. It is surrounded by a 35 000 square kilometre Game Management Area. The Park is unfenced
allowing free movement of the animals between the park and the GMA and
allowing access to the Zambezi River. The Park and surrounding GMA form an important link in the migratory route of elephants from the bordering national parks of Botswana and Namibia
The Falls provide great photo opportunities at any time of the year but the best time is around June or July
Rafting is best from February to May after the rains. Wildlife is best viewed from July to November, when water is scarce and the animals are forced to come to the water holes or down to the river to drink.
