Epupa Camp & Campsite
On the edge of the southern bank of the Kunene River, the lodge and campsites are nestled as an oasis under the wild figs, makalani palms and baobabs. A retreat in an otherwise harsh and remote area of pure beauty and although it’s not luxury, it’s a notable step up from other more basic tented camps you might come across.
Vast Meru-style tents on stone platforms peak out through the trees, with shaded patios just a few metres above the grey-green Kunene River swirling below. Venture too far and you’re likely going for a swim, not recommend with crocodiles lurking nearby. Each of the ten tents is fitted with an en suite bathroom with hot running water. Simple but all you need.
If you’re looking to camp, then you can either set up camp yourself or enjoy a tented campsite all ready for you to move in. Ten dome tents housing 2 single beds each. The same experience as traditional camping, only the campsite is set up for you. Overlooking the river with private ablution facilities (open-air), fire place and sink. Request your firewood and simply enjoy the tranquillity.
Essential in the heat, the swimming pool is a welcomed delight and with a view, it’s the perfect spot to cool off and relax. Head across the bridge to the private island and explore. Enjoy the outdoor bar and a sundowner and at night the romantic setting for dinner under a canopy of stars.
