• Waterfalls of Namibia
Today, I want to travel back with you to the waterfalls in Namibia.
Waterfalls Ruacana (Ruacana).
It is located in the middle reaches of the Kunene River in the southwestern part of Africa.
It is near Ruacana in northern Namibia.
The location is Kunene River Falls state border between Angola and Namibia.
The height of the water drop is 124 meters, the width of the river here (for high water) is equal to 695 meters.
This waterfall with a funny name Epupa (Epupa).
In the language of the Herero Epupa means' falling water, "as well as" the foam that occurs at the waterfall rocks. " This waterfall, as well as Ruacana, originates from the Kunene River.
The width of the Epupa waterfalls up to 500 meters and a height of about 37 meters. Who can say that it is small and not worthy of attention?
With its abundant tributaries flowing into the river Kunene frontier with the Angolan highlands, it is always overflowing. Kunene washed on the Namibian coast, arid Kaokoveld zone, numerous narrow ducts.
In connection with the plans of the Governments of Angola and Namibia to build near Epupa Falls strong dam, which could lead to the destruction of the waterfall, there was a political conflict, has been revised and therefore the decision to build between the local population of the north of Namibia and the central government.
Epupa Falls is one of the attractions of the north-west of Namibia, frequented by tourists.
