#1 of 13 in Things to do in Kunene Region
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.

  • It was an amazing experience and definitely worth the drive. Pity the water level was a bit low. But still a beautiful view.  more »
  • The Epupa Falls are located in an exceptional environment, since they are surrounded by desert and in the midst of it appears this oasis full of Palm trees and water. In the time that we were not they had plenty of water, the environment is still spectacular and beautiful waterfalls. The best is the contrast between the water and the Palm trees and the desert that surrounds them.

  • Visit the Epupa Falls is definitely a trip worth. Unfortunately the rainy season has not really arrived during our trip in early November, so that the River was only little water and you could only imagine the raging masses of water. Nevertheless, the arrival already due to the magnificent landscape is not in vain. The pad is now somewhat expanded to Ruacana, the D3700 and creating the route from the EPUPA falls to Ruacana now in about 3 hours. The journey over the D3700 worthwhile in any case.

  • To be honest we were a bit disappointed. Pleasant place, but probably not worth the drive all up to the far North of Namibia. Some facilities available, take some time to visit a himba village and to get some insight into more rural Namibia
  • Nice, clean
  • Maybe the most beautiful place I've ever visited.
  • Great places
  • Beautiful scenery. Absolutely breathtaking
