featured sites to visit in Kunene

The Epupa falls are created by the Kunene River on the border between Angola and Namibia in the Kaokoland area of the region. The falls are also known as Monte Negro Falls in Angola. The river drops in a series of cascades spanning a distance of about 1,5km forming what looks like "foam". The falls were named Epupa, the Herero word for foam. The area around the falls has richly coloured rock walls and travelling through the area gives a great view of the breath-taking landscape. There are a number of lodges and campsites in the area with great views of the river. You can explore the area alone or take part in a number of guided tours on offer.

Activities :

  • Bird watching - there are over 240 recorded Namibian bird species in the Epupa falls area.
  • Hiking - Explore one of Kunene's virgin landscapes and see why the region is a place to visit.
  • Culture - Visit the Himba settlement and experience one of Namibia's oldest cultures.
