Highlights of Namibia

Epupa Falls

Scroll

On the Kunene River and reached by 4×4 from the town of Opuwo in the far north (Kaokoland), Epupa Falls descend 60m over a distance of 1.5km in a series of cascades over colourful rocks. The falls are named ‘Epupa’ in Herero language for the waterfalls’ spray – particularly evident after the rains. In Angola the same falls are known as Monte Negro Falls. The surrounding area is unspoilt, offering interesting flora such as baobabs, makalani palms, maroelas, anna trees and wild figs as well as medicinal plants such as brown-stem corkwood and hoodia – the latter a hunger suppressant used for centuries by San bushmen and now used globally in slimming pills.
