Epupa Falls

Published on 10/24/2015

The border river between Namibia and Angola, the Kunene, plummets down a 40 metre deep gorge at the Epupa Falls close to the nearby village of Epupa.  The trip from Opuwo to the Epupa waterfalls at the Kunene river is one of the easier, but really worthwhile and wonderful experience. Just before Epupa one gets to a hill. From the top the scenery is truely enchanting. You see the Kunene valley, with palm and baobab trees lining the riverbed. It feels like having discovered a piece of paradise.  In the  Herero language Epupa means “falling water”.

 Many Himba live in the Epupa area. The little girls wear, before reaching puberty  two braids hanging into the face. When they become women, their hair is woven into a couple of smaller braids decorated with leather and perls.

 

The Kunene River is one of Namibia’s five perennial rivers. Nonetheless the water level changes depending on the annual rain falls so that the natural spectacle Epupa Falls is subject to seasonal fluctuations. The best months to view the falls are April and May.

Some of the activities that you can do at the falls, visit Himba settlement, Rafting, Bird watching trip by boat, visit to Epupa Falls and hiking.

 Much more dangerous are the crocodiles in the Kunene River thus swimming in the river is not advisable!

 

The Epupa Falls can be reached via Opuwo . It is advisable to top up on fuel, water and food supplies in Opuwo before departing to Epupa as shopping opportunities are scarce there.
