Crawling along dusty roads through dry riverbeds, dodging a goat or cow, the route reminds one of a scene from Dirty Harry. Except that here you find the Himba and that your destination is so much more scenic than any town in a Western-movie. The last 40 kilometers is dotted with rock marvels, stunning Baobabs and then finally… a green oasis of Makalani Palms hiding the very essence of this place, Epupa Falls.
Right here, on the edge of northern Namibia, is the very heart of Epupa, Epupa Falls Lodge. It has been here forever and makes for the pefect self drive safari in Namibia. Back in the day, it was only a campsite with a fantastic view, now it is both lodge and campsite at one of the most marvelous places in Namibia.
The Kunene region is already a very popular destination for cultural enthusiasts that want to meet the Ovahimba up close and personal. Add to this the mighty Kunene and it’s even more spectacular falls, and we have a top destination. We now have added a new dimension to our top destination – Epupa Falls Lodge.
From any of the five chalets you have a breath-taking view right onto the falls. The limited number of chalets ensures that you receive personal attention and are treated as a special guest. Not only are the chalets built from mostly local materials, they are also built on stilts which ensures better views of the falls and better birding.
