About Kaporogwe Falls

Kaporogwe falls are a great scenic attraction found in Isuba village, found about 15 km from Tukuyu town. There is a cave that allows access for visitors to enjoy the view of these majestic falls from inside, adding to the falls' already-aesthetic appeal. The waterfalls are 25 metres high and the waters are sourced from the Kala River, a tributary of the Kiwira River.

To further add up to your adventure, it is also possible to carefully descend the falls, enter tunnels hidden behind the curtain of water tumbling down in front of you, and swim in the pool below.

Behind the falls, there is a natural cave and a concrete wall that the Germans are believed to have used as a fort or a hideout during the First World War. Stone tools such as axes and knives were also found nearby, making the region around the falls a prehistoric site as well.
