Slapovi Epupa na reki Kunene

Po 3 urah vožnje po prašni afriški rdeči cesti smo se pripeljali v kamp ob mogočni reki Kunene. Napis “beware crocodiles!” na palmi ti da hitro vedeti, da čofotanje v reki ni ravno priporočljivo. Vsako leto namreč krokodili še vedno pojedo nekaj domačinov – v letu 2014, po pripovedovanju vodiča Owena, na tem delu reke tam okrog 30. Zavidljiva statistika, ni kaj. Glavna atrakcija okoliša so zagotovo slapovi Epupa in vasice Himb, ki so raztresene po okoliški afriški savani. Pokrajina okrog kampa je naravnost fantastična, tista prava afriška, ki sva jo videla že na najinih prejšnjih popotovanjih. In tudi kamp je vrhunski – prava lokacija za napolniti baterije, oprati perilo in narediti plan za naprej. In slapovi Epupa – “noro” je edina beseda, ki jo najdem. Enostavno jih moraš doživeti v živo. 🙂

After 3 hours drive along the dusty african red road we arrived to the campsite by the mighty river Kunene. The words “beware crocodiles!” on the desk quickly explained us, that the river is not really a swimming paradise. According to the locals, each year crocodiles kill a good number of the local people – according to the guide Owen – around 30 in year 2014. An impressive number. The main attraction of the area are surely Epupa Falls and Himba villages, which are scattered in the surrounding African savanna. The landscape around the camp is absolutely fantastic. And the camp is excellent too perfect location to recharge the batteries, do laundry and make a plan for the future. And Epupa Falls spectacular. But you have to experience it in live – to see and feel the water. 🙂
