The Kunene Region is located in the remote northwestern part of Namibia. The Kunene River forms the border between Angola and Namibia and is one of only five perennial rivers in Namibia.
The Kunene River is an invaluable source of water for the local Himba people and has been the mainstay of their existence for hundreds of years. For travelers, the most striking feature of the river is the magnificent Epupa Falls, which cascade over a distance of more than one kilometer downstream and has an impressive vertical waterfall of about 60 meters. White water rafting and kayaking are popular activities in the area. Visitors can look forward to a range of exciting activities: Learn about local culture with a trip to a traditional Himba village, hiking, sundowner cruises, wildlife viewing and birdwatching.
