About Epupa Falls
Waterfalls have an atmosphere about them that are both mighty and magic at the same time and the Epupa Falls gives of an air of exactly that. You’ll find this thundering sheet of water on the border of Angola and Namibia in the Kunene region. In Namibia this site is called Epupa Falls, but hop on over into Angola and it’s called Monte Negro Falls. Either way - worth a visit.

Epupa Falls’ water weight is so heavy that when it hits the river below there’s some definite frothing and foaming going on. That’s actually where the river gets its name from - "Epupa" means “foam” in Herero.

The river that leads up to Epupa Falls is half a kilometre wide and tumbles down in 2 1.5 km spread of waterfalls. The greatest drop in the series of falls is a grand 37 m.

There is a makoro-full of fish and other aquatic species that swim for their lives in Epupa Falls every day. It’s no surprise really – the area is absolutely thriving with lush vegetation and the creatures that live off it.

Epupa Falls is a much-loved attraction in Namibia. The unspoiled atmosphere that runs wild around the falls adds to this natural attraction’s appeal. There are fig trees, makalani palms, baobabs and coloured rock walls everywhere. Simply beautiful.

How do you manage to keep a site like this so beautifully preserved so that each traveller manages to experience the attraction as if it were a true hidden gem? Well, you make sure that the path to its location isn’t a walk in the park. To get to the Epupa Falls you need to get there in a 4x4… but the bumpy path is all worth it. Cross my heart.
The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!

I loved every millisecond of the entire trip... Guess what I did in Swakopmund? I skydived out of a plane - woohoo was that AWESOME :-)
