Epupa Falls, Namibia/Angola

Epupa Falls was the most pleasant surprise of our trip around Namibia. We flew to this far north western edge of the country, right up on the Angolan border, not exactly sure what to expect. We found an amazing landscape of hundreds of cascading waterfalls highlighted by mighty baobab trees and palm groves. Kaokoland is the home of the nomadic Himba tribe, a very primitive yet colorful people.
