  • After days and days of orange and desert yacsee as far as the eye can see, the view of Epupa Falls fills the heart with wonder and natural green charm. The site of the falls is just wonderful. Despite the dry season, in August the river and waterfalls were filled with water. The waterfall can be visited for free through access just before the entrances of the various campsites. The climate on site is definitely warmer and humid than the rest of the country (37 degrees in August), so it may be recommended to have a mosquito repellent under your hand, especially in the wet seasons. It is advisable to calculate very carefully the stage and the kilometers needed, since the dirt road from opuwo is among the most difficult to travel and requires no less than 2/2h30 of very careful driving. MAGIC LUOGO!!!

  • After miles and km of desert in which we met many children and Villages Himba find themselves in front of waterfalls, water was beautiful! The sunset is the best time to relax and observe the colors... people

  • We arrived at Epupa Falls in the middle of a strong rainy season. The flow in the river was very strong and all the waterfalls flowed on its own. From one side to the other side of the river. A very impressive sight. You can see the pictures.
  • It's beautiful
