Description [ correction ]

On the other side of the Kunene river in Angola, Epupa Falls are known as the Monte Negro Falls. The river is half a kilometre wide at this point and features a series of waterfalls ranging from 1.5m to 37m in height. Epupa is a Herero word meaning foam, named after the foam created by the falling water. These unique falls form a habitat for a few endemic fish and other aquatic species.
