Epupa Falls – One of Namibia’s Most Beautiful Water Features
A Breath-taking Natural Showcase in the Koakoaveld
Visitors flock to the tranquil environment at Epupa Falls to lap up the natural surroundings of gushing water as it dashes through a 40m deep gash in the colorful rock walls.
This lovely unspoiled environment is part of the Kunene River, one of only five perennial watercourses in Namibia on the border between Angola and Namibia.
Every season offers a different spectacle thanks to the river’s dependence on rainfall, with April and May being the most popular times to visit.
The border river between Namibia and Angola, the Kunene, plummets down a 40-meter-deep gorge at the Epupa Falls close to the nearby village of Epupa. In the Herero language Epupa means “falling water”.
