Observe the mist-shrouded environment with fig trees, baobabs, and makalani palms at Epupa Falls. From the top of this striking set of falls--of which the longest drops 37 m (121 ft)--take in sweeping views of the Kunene valley and river. Join a guided tour of the waterfalls and nearby Himba villages, or go bird-watching and wildlife sighting. Alternatively, opt for some white-water rafting several miles upriver. Bring some food for a picnic in one of the designated areas.
