Following a detour from the river through a section of uninhabited open country, Livingstone crossed the River Kalomo, a tributary of the Zambezi.

"On the 30th [November] we crossed the river Kalomo, here about 50 yards broad, and the only stream that never dries up on this ridge. [...] Here the granite crops out again in great rounded masses which change the dip of the gneiss and mica schist rocks from the westward to the eastward."

Around Kalomo, Livingstone collected metamorphic and igneous rocks.
