Lufubu Falls in Luwingu, ZambiaAtlas Obscura – Latest Articles and Places

Tucked away off the main road just west of Luwingu, Zambia, is a small waterfall called Lufubu Falls.   
A gently-flowing stream flows clear through some minor drops and tumbles before going around a gentle bend and then crashing over an immense stone structure before returning to its quiet flow. There have been a few structures built on the top, but they are mostly now in ruins. Teens will often gather here and sometimes churches will use the clear waters above the falls for baptisms, but rarely do outsiders visit this serene location.  
From the dirt parking area, you can hear the falls but due to heavy vegetation, you cannot see them. A short walk down some rock face will allow you a more clear view. The mist feels cool on a hot day and the mild roar is pleasant and peaceful. 
, and you might find a link to the Zambia Daily Mail Limited, which shows a photo... which is NOT actually Lufubu Falls.
