Epupa Falls

Epupa Falls, a series of cascades that drop a total of 60 m over a distance of about 1.5 km, reaches a maximum width of 500 m. Originating from the Herero word for the spume created by falling water, Epupa is a fitting name for this fascinating sight.

Nowhere else in the world does one find a waterfall contrasted with such wild, arid desert landscape. Watching the Epupa Falls and its white mists of water against the red colours of the surrounding desert and mountains during sunset, with a sundowner drink in one hand and camera or binoculars in the other, is likely to make up one of the most beautiful and memorable experiences during a trip to Namibia.
