Kaokoland Tour | The End

Every now and then Koos, the owner of Epupa Falls Lodge, is talked into doing a safari. Whether it is a hiking safari or a driving safari, someone turns his pinky far enough to convince him this is the year!

In 2011 a group of friends (multiple-return-friends) convinced him to take them into Kaokoland. After many mails and phone calls, a tour was planned and they arrived by plane at Epupa.

And today we say good bye to a wonderful tour and even better memories. Have a good weekend chaps!

Tour | Kaoko-Himba Safaris

Kaokoland | Bocian Safaris

So you want to see all of Namibia – or most of it anyway – in just 15 days. Then Bocian Safaris has the tour for you; Othithiya Namibia. But don’t let the name scare you. This is an excellent route for the traveler who wants to see as much as he can while in Namibia.

Bocian Safaris is a Polish Tour Operator situated in Walvis Bay. Catering for the Polish, Bocian Safaris has opened Namibia up to a country who would not otherwise have traveled here.

So why not ditch the cold Polish weather and join us for a cold beer on a hot winter’s afternoon on our very popular deck for a very different “wildlife” experience.

 

Current Road Conditions

Though Namibia did not receive the strong winds of cyclone Dineo, we did receive plenty of rain over the weekend. The photos below were taken on a farm close to Kalkveld and shows that plenty of rivers, big or small, have come down. Worried about your trip? Well, most rivers, like the one below, are what we call “flash floods” and are down within the hour. Be save at all times and first walk through the river. If you cannot / won’t walk through – don’t drive through – wait it out. The road between Opuwo and Epupa is still in a very good condition while we do not recommend driving the D3700 between Epupa and Ruacana.

Epupa a Top Destination

Epupa Falls Lodge makes it to Richard Bang’s List of top hotels/lodges in 2014!

Richard Bangs is not just another travel blogger. He has traveled to more places than I can find on the map. And in 2014 he visited Namibia and our very own Epupa Falls Lodge.

Of all the places he could choose for his Top 11 destinations in the world, he chose Epupa as one. And we are bursting with pride.

Thank you Richard!
