Stayed here for 1 night and found it a very unfriendly place to stay, I walked into the bar and there was a full table of people near the bar, I asked one if they had wifi, and his reply was your in Africa don't you know, which didn't answer my question. I found the showers small and very difficult...

Dear Diane, Thank you for your review. I'm really sorry that you had such an awful time. As I'm not sure who answered you about the wi-fi - I cannot really comment on that, but I have taken it up with the owner. As far as the showers are concerned - this is the first complaint that we have received...

We had the privilege of travelling to Epupa falls in August and have to put this beautiful place at the top of our list of places to visit in Namibia. What a beautiful setting and what a well run Lodge. The staff were incredible and the accommodation overlooking the breathtaking falls was just amazing. Excellent food, service and extremely comfortable...

Great campsite with amazing location right on the river at the falls. Nice decked restaurant over the river which is a great place to sit and watch the water rush by. Good clean ablution block with donkey boilers for hot water. Epupa falls was one of the most spectacular places I've ever been and absolutely worth the long drive. You...

Thank you for a great review! More often than not clients find that they want to stay longer than the one night that they booked! So excellent advise to all future clients - Epupa is an excellent location to wind down after the long distances and gravel roads. Thank you for reviewing Epupa Falls.

We had cabins 1 & 2 during our stay & enjoyed the experience immensely. The cabins are well laid out & have toilet, shower, twin beds with mosquito net, table & chairs. There is no glass window facing the waterfall, so you get the full experience & on the deck of the restaurant, you even get the spray, depending on...

NamCrit, Public Relations Manager at Epupa Falls Lodge, responded to this review

Dear David And Kerstin, Thank you for your wonderful review. Epupa Falls Lodge was built to blend in with nature and as such, the chalets are often seen by the "critters" as part of their environment. I think the huntsman you met, we call in Namibia a solifugae. They are excellent mosquito deterrents! But not for the fainthearted. Unlike most...

Will definitely be coming back, the drive is hard but worth it. Would not recommend driving at night. I loved the culture and the freedom everyone was top less lol because of the humidity. No mosquitoes, a few bugs here and there but nothing serious.

The large safari tents with attached shower rooms are lovely. My tent was right by the river and I could look out through the mesh across the water to Angola. The frogs were croaking, the mega moon was in the sky and the stars were huge. Dawn was a beautiful experience too. I enjoyed having a drink on the terrace...

Epupa Falls and the whole Kunene region is an awesome area. The falls itself, especially during the sun set, is one of the most amazing sites we've ever been to. However, we were quite disappointed by unwillingness of the owner and staff of the Epupa Falls Lodge. We booked a campsite with a view of the river but we did...

You could not get closer to the Epupa falls. You are sitting next to the Epupa falls and you can hear the whole time the nice sound of the falls. Service was very nice and they tried everything to make us happy. The rooms could be renovated. But in total it was a very nice stay.
