Waving palms, spectacular sunsets, the rush of perennially flowing waters cascading down richly colored rock walls, a vibrant bird life.
This is Epupa Camp, situated east of the Epupa Falls on the banks of the Kunene River in northwestern Namibia.

Our small tented camp offers you a relaxing yet exhilarating few days of personalized service and excellent meals in the seclusion of a lush riverine wilderness of baobabs,
wild figs and Makalani palms.
Epupa Camp campsite is situated well out of reach of the sometimes noisy Epupa Village and visitors can be ensured of falling asleep hearing only the tranquil sounds of
the Kunene River and nocturnal animals and birds. The Epupa area offers much to see, experience and do. A visit to Epupa Camp will allow for you most memorable stay in Namibia.

How to Get There:
Epupa Camp lies on the banks of the Kunene River in the Kunene Region, of which the northern part was known as Kaokoland. From Opuwo take the DR 3700 gravel
road north. Epupa is about 180 km or three-hours’ driving from Opuwo. It is scenic road, made slow by the many dry river beds, herds of farm animals and the nomadic
Himba you pass. After 100 km you reach Okongwati. On arrival at Epupa, follow the signs for Epupa Camp as it winds through the picturesque village. We are about 800
meters upstream from the main falls. A 4x4 vehicle is recommended, especially during the rainy season.
