Epupa Falls Lodge

Enquire Now

Epupa Falls is situated in North West Namibia, on the banks of the Kunene River, and several hundred meters away lies Epupa Falls Lodge. In dramatic contrast to the stark beauty of the remote Kaokoland, the lush riverine vegetation surrounding the lodge provides cool shade.


Epupa Falls Lodge consists of nine luxury safari-style tents erected on stone platforms, each with two single beds and en-suite bathroom. All tents have electricity and mosquito netting and an outside, shaded balcony overlooking the tranquil Kunene River. Large makalani palms overhead provide welcome shade from the midday sun.


The adjacent dining room and lounge area also face the Kunene River, along with a lounging pool for cooling down from the midday heat, or enjoying a glass of sparkling wine while watching the sun set. A small suspension bridge connects Epupa Falls Lodge with its own private island with hammocks, benches, and lounge chairs along the river to create your own little piece of paradise. Telephone, fax and internet facilities are also available.


Join one of the local Himba guides as they take you through one of the small Himba villages in the region and learn how these fascinating nomadic people live, work, think and worship.

Take a guided walk to Epupa Falls with the option of taking a dip in one of the many rock pools or in the shallow water before the falls themselves. The walk will take you past the calm waters before the dramatic falls where the Himba people often come to wash their clothes, bathe, or play in the water. Finally, you will be taken to the best lookouts of the falls further downstream. The falls are a total of 700 meters long with a height of 35 meters, including rapids. Depending on the season, the falls have a typical flow from 20 (winter) to 800 m3 (summer) of water per second.

For those who want more than just to gaze at the river, half-day and full-day rafting or canoeing trips down the gentle Kunene river are offered. For bird lovers, the lodge offers half-day river birding trips where an expert guide will point out some of the 238 different species that inhabit the Kunene region.
