Epupa Falls Lodge & Campsite
Epupa Falls Lodge is shaded by native makalani palms and the snaking swathe of riverine forest, a welcome sight after the dusty desolation of Namibia's most wild realm: Kaokoland.
Epupa Falls Lodge is a privately owned and run lodge offering a unique stay, with the best views over the Kunene River and the Epupa Falls in the heart of Kaokoland.
It’s nothing fancy but with great hosts and the best location in the area it’s well worth the stay.
Rustic wooden, canvas and thatch chalets on stiltz give a spectacular view of the river out front through a framed window, which is really more a tented 'flap' that opens up to allow the breeze in and allow you to look out onto the stunning surrounds.
What used to be only a campsite is now a small and intimate lodge comprised of 5 chalets and still offers 13 campsites under the shade of the makalanis’. A paradise in an otherwise dry and arid region.
Built of local materials, the lodge has an aptly 'local cultural' feel. The chalets offer all the basics with en suite bathrooms, hot running water, alluring mozzi nets, solar power and coffee or tea in bed.
Watch this space as they are currently in the process of building 4 new family units which will be available from May 2019.
On the Kunene River within earshot of Epupa Falls; en suite chalets; restaurant; bar; swimming pool; laundry facilities & secure parking.
Campsites: Individual campsites on river sand under shade; braai area; shared ablutions with bathrooms & showers with hot water. All water is river water.
Excellent bird watching; sundowner drives; hiking; fishing & visits to Himba villages.
Day drives through Zebra Mountain also include a Himba village visit and optional hiking.
Photographic tours can be done on request.
