These falls are amazing and the river separates Naminbia and Angola. It is possible to walk along the river from the falls. The place is quiet and relax and worth visiting.

Palms are all over Epupa Falls. They must be spectacular when the river is high on November, December, but anyway it is worth to visit them since you will find a green paradise in a very arid area.

Spectacular falls, especially if the river level is high. Be careful walking around on top as there are no safety barriers. Well worth ahike downstream for a swim.

Everyone should experience this view and tranquility at least once! Amazing to discover this oasis in the middle of "nothingness"

Wonderful oasis in the middle of a desert! I recommend the rafting and going to see the sunset up in the mountain, where a Himba installed a shadow area. Also the Himba bar in the village is an experience!

We took a short walk from our campsite through a Hindi villiage to see the lovely Epupa Falls. Amazing to see all that water amidst a Namibian desert. Lovely

This remarkable place is definitely worth the drive up there. The entrance to the falls is free but if you wish to access the viewpoint then a 40.00ND per person charge is applicable. The views from all areas are spectacular. Truly amazing!

Epupa falls is not very high, but it is spread over a very wide area. To get the full view of it you need to walk to the lookout point which is approximately 1km from the Epupa falls campsite.
