In the dry season the falls are not that spectacular and I dont think the round trip of 800 Km from Etosha was worth the effort, but if passing by from or to Angola the falls are worth a stop

It´s a must visit when you are in the area. Try to go in the afternoon so the heat is not to overwhelming.

Epupa falls provide a fantastic view, palm trees lining the water side, baobabs isolated on rocks between water masses smashing down the rocks. Take the walk up the hill and pay 40 N$ to the nice lady awaiting you there.

The falls are not the biggest we have seen, but they cover a wide area and are very pretty. The sound of them provides a good background to sleeping at Epupa Falls Lodge. From the lodge you can see the biggest part of the falls...More

We learned by now that you have to pay for everything in Namibia. Even to drive up the hill to view the falls! But, it was worth it. Wonderful view of the beautiful falls.
