Epupa falls Lodge - A Small Beginning

Epupa Falls Lodge, on the banks of the Kunene River, is a privately owned lodge in remote northwest Namibia, offering an authentic wilderness experience and the ultimate off-the-beaten-track experience.

As the oldest accommodation in Epupa, Epupa Falls Lodge & Campsite is first and foremost an ambitious conservation project. 

With accommodation for a maximum of 24 guests and +/- 40 campers, Epupa Falls Lodge & Campsite has the lowest ratio of staff to guests. This low footprint affirms our sustainable model of ecotourism. 

Not just another Lodge

Passion & Expertise

Privately owned and run for 35 years by Koos Verwey.

90% Local Materials

Built from Makalani Palms and the rocks from the area, Epupa Falls Lodge blends in perfectly with its surroundings.


On the forefront of conservation, Epupa Falls Lodge not only preserves the Himba culture, but also aims to protect the Kunene riparian vegetation.


Epupa Falls Lodge & Campsite fully embraces the Himba culture and you can learn about the culture from the moment you enter camp.


A Cultural Experience

Your Namibian experience begins here overlooking the iconic Epupa Falls, in the far north-west Kunene Region of Namibia. Whether you choose one of our five river view chalets, a pocket-friendly ground chalet or a campsite – eco-friendly accommodation and generous Namibian hospitality set the scene for an enriched private cultural experience. With one of the lowest guest footprints in Namibia, Epupa Falls Lodge offers space to breathe and reconnect with nature.

The air is still fresh from the night before and the quiet touches your skin. Back in the city, you would have been stuck in traffic now. Here in the Himba Village in front of you, the fires are only starting now as the sun slowly makes its way over the nearest mountaintop. Making your way towards the fire, you sit down with the first Himba mother as she gets the maize going. She shouts to the first boy she sees to milk a goat. The day is only beginning now and you are in time to experience a bit of Himba goodness.

It could be you, right here, experiencing the Himba life as it is. You can even choose, for the first time ever, whether you would like to only visit for a few hours, or if you would like to overnight at the kraal and wake up in time for a pot of maize, freshly made on the fire in front of you.
