n the Chinsali district in Northern Province, reached by turning west of the Great North rd about 24kms south of the the Chinsali turn-off at Two Leopards. The Chimanabwe River flows through an attractive series of rapids and cascades averaging about five meters each but the total drop over a distance of 500m is forty meters. The Chipoma Falls in January are at their maximum height. Their name in Bemba conveys the reverberating rush of falling water because you can hear the sound of the falls long before they are in sight
