|The Epupa Falls lie on the Kunene River, which forms the northern border with Angola|
The river is about 500 metres wide and drops in a series of waterfalls spread over 1.5 km, with the greatest single drop being 37 m.
Kunene region also known as the Kaokoland is one of the thirteen regions of Namibia and home to the Himba ethnic group. Compared to the rest of Namibia, it is relatively underdeveloped. This may be due to the mountainous inaccessible geography and the dryness that significantly hinders agriculture.
The largest town and capital of the region is Opuwo.

This is indeed a huge piece of land with lots of space and lots of beautiful mountains as far as the eye can see. The falls are beautiful and I just like the way you have captured the spray of mist of the one on the right hand side. This landscape is just layers upon layers of beautiful nature all in one. Thanks for sharing.
Grand view of the Falls from a distance, Albert.
This point of view also gives a clear impression of the terrain through which the river flows.
The valley looks fairly green at this time of the year.
Please show us the close-up views of these Falls if you have them.
Thanks and regards.
