Kaokoland Safari | Himba Tour

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.

Over the next couple of days I will share the photos of one of the travelers with you as they drove through Kaokoland on tour with Koos. Enjoy!

Off Course, during such a tour, it is almost mandatory to do a Himba Village tour. And where better to learn about the Himba than here in the Marienfluss where they are still very much without Western influence.

And then it rained 2011

Epupa does not get rain when it rains across the country. In fact, it hardly ever rains up here in our little corner. But our river… oh dear me… The Cunene river comes from the highlands of Angola where it doesn’t just rain. IT RAINS! So it has happened, and it does so quite often, that the area of Epupa has drought, but the river is in full flood. Here are a few photos of such a flood.

Activities | Himba Tour

Epupa is not just about the Epupa Waterfalls – it is also about the Himba. Though the Himba in Epupa has given up their nomadic lifestyle, the villages in the area are still very much traditional. But don’t expect to find a Himba without a phone – even they have learned that it is easier to call to find out where it has rained than to walk there…
