Epupa Falls

About the area

Situated in the northern Namibian region of Kaokoland, Epupa Falls is near the border of Angola. This oasis was named by the Herero people,meaning ‘falling water’. This is an apt description as the area is most notable for its magnificent waterfalls and rushing Kunene River. The river is 1 of Namibia’s 5 perennial rivers but is subject to seasonal fluctuations and is best seen during April and May. Epupa Falls is a gorgeous contrast to Namibia’s desert as it is dominated by rolling hills, green brush, and the beautiful aquatic paradise.
