Epupa Camp lies on the banks of the Kunene River in the far northern Kaokoland region of Namibia. This is a remote wilderness only accessible by 4x4 vehicle or fly-in air charter. Off the beaten track, remarkably serene and the home of the nomadic Himba tribes, this is true Africa.
Sights include visits to the Epupa Falls, a true photographers’ playground with refreshing rock pools for a dip, and visits to a Himba village where the traditional way of life of these nomadic, pastoral people can be learned. Sundowner drives, rafting or canoeing on the Kunene River, bird-watching boat trips, hiking and guided walks to Epupa Falls are also available.
Accommodation consists of 9 safari-style Tents erected on stone platforms under the shade of large makalani palms. All feature en suite bathrooms, electricity, mosquito nets and a shaded veranda overlooking the Kunene River. The camp also includes a main lounge and dining room with river views, along with a pool. Three meals and “high tea” are served daily with freshly baked breads and home-grown vegetables coming from their organic gardens.
