While this is not a park you’d visit for game viewing, the Ngonye Falls (also known as the Sioma Falls) are well worth a detour. They’re located at the point where the northern Kalahari Sand gives way to a basalt dyke. Above the falls the river is very wide, and although the falls aren’t very high, the sheer volume pouring over the horse-shoe shaped falls is second only to Victoria Falls. Below the falls the basalt dyke forces the river to narrow and there are many rock pools and white water rapids to be seen. This is a beautiful area, and if you stand on the rocks on either side of the falls you can experience an eerie vibration caused by water flowing beneath the rocks. This is a beautiful section of the Zambezi River, the scenery is particularly rewarding when viewed from one of the lodge boats.
