Epupa Falls Lodge Accommodation

Epupa Falls is known for its single drop of 37 metres in height, but it is actually a series of large waterfalls formed in the Kunene river on the border of Angola and Namibia. There are a number of lodges scattered around Epupa Falls, all offering a unique experience. But it is only Epupa Falls Lodge that offers accommodations with arresting views across the falls.

Your Namibian experience begins here at Epupa Falls Lodge overlooking the iconic Epupa Falls of northwest Namibia. Whether you choose one of our five river-view rooms or a pocket-friendly ground-level room, or even a campsite – our 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, at Epupa Falls Lodge, there is space to breathe and reconnect with nature.


Perched on a wooden deck, Epupa Falls Lodge & Restaurant, along with the five river-view rooms, is protected by lush vegetation, but still offers sweeping views of the Kunene River and Epupa Falls Waterfall. The dining and bar areas take advantage of the view allowing you to savour this pristine environment even while you relax between activities. Two meals a day are included in the lodge’s package.

A swimming pool built on a higher level behind the campsites is the ideal venue to relax and escape the midday heat. Our on-site masseuse offers pampering and relaxation for all guests who want to refuel and rejuvenate.

The campsites share communal bathrooms and showers.

Epupa Falls Lodge is located on the banks of the Kunene River, right on the increasingly famous Epupa Falls. While the entire area is famous for its rich cultural experience, it is only Epupa Falls Lodge that has access to the remote villages and inside knowledge of the Himba people that live here. The owner of Epupa Falls Lodge, having lived in this remote part of Namibia for more than 30 years, has built treasured relationships with the people and can thus offer an experience that no other lodge can equal.

Epupa Falls Lodge is a 3-hour drive from Opuwo. There are no airports close by, just a runway for smaller planes about 5 kilometres from the lodge.
